A theoretical physicist finds herself pitted against a handsome young adjunct who claims to have solved the 'three-body problem.' If she proves him wrong, she may jeopardize her academic career. How far will she go for science?
As with any body in motion, Prof. Delia Howell seems destined to stay in motion: She's in line for her university's top scientific medal, and her future as a rising star in theoretical physics is nearly guaranteed. But the upward trajectory of her career is jeopardized when a handsome young adjunct claims to have solved the 'three-body problem' and is added to the shortlist for the Newton Medal. Will Delia be able to disprove her rival's theory, or will a third 'body' lead her in an entirely unexpected direction? Written by
