       Additional Information  
     
      Dr. Stephen Shelby is a literate, honorable man, passionate about his career in astronomy, and about life. He loves his telescopes, his books, his privileged access to the great observatories. But his snug little world is turned upside down when he’s asked to join an elite scientific team searching for the secret of the universe. His first discovery: dark matter isn’t only in the stars, it lies deep in the darkest regions of human desire and duplicity. ‘Dark Matter’ is a compelling, intelligent thriller that takes the reader from the icy heights of the ultra-modern Keck Observatory atop the Mauna Kea, to the white temple of Palomar, where some of the most exciting discoveries of the 20th century were made. Along the way, Dr. Shelby will have to confront his own demons, and his continuing obsession with his former wife, who left him for an eccentric but brilliant Nobel laureate whose revolutionary theories may be fueling the hatred of an equally brilliant killer who is stalking the scientists. Love, honor, deception, untold riches. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Whoever discovers the secret of dark matter will be remembered for all of history. And as Dr. Shelby is about to find out, for some it is a search worth killing for…
