Hiram Granville, a modern Leonardo, secured more than a thousand patents during his lifetime, often just ahead of others who had already been working on the same ideas. His son, John, an economics genius, never lost a cent in the stock market—or any other financial deal—and was investigated for insider trading on more than one occasion. Now Cat, a documentarian; her researcher, Mercy; and Cracker Jack, an electronics whiz, are doing a film about the Granville clan. What they find as they research the family is madness, suicide, a seemingly total seclusion, and a frightening glimpse about what it means to peer into the future.
Kate Wilhelm is the best-selling author of dozens of novels and short story collections. Among her novels are the popular courtroom thrillers featuring attorney Barbara Holloway. Her other works include the science-fiction classic Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang. Born in Ohio, she now lives in Eugene, Oregon.
"Wilhelm is an accomplished mystery author, and this is the story of an investigation, detective work, uncovering a criminal conspiracy. Throughout, the shadow of danger follows the characters… Tense and compelling." (Locus)
