Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Far beneath the Swiss Alps Mankind's most ambitious, most expensive, arguably his greatest achievement throbs in preternatural gloom, served by unpaid minions and yielding its masters endless riches in gold.
But one of those masters has doubts. He is troubled about his treatment of the wailing minions, concerned about the nobility of the cause, haunted by questions regarding the magical Ring he serves.
He unlocks his mind to a counselor and the Ring's spell is broken: he begins to act independently but his world falls to pieces as the Ring exerts its power to destroy him.

Roberto-Carlos, Particle Physicist, has reached the pinnacle of his academic career. He's looked up to by legions of interns and untenured researchers who obey him unquestioningly. But his long successful reign over CERN's data-processing facility is disturbed by his doubts about the Standard Model and the lauded Higgs Boson. He cannot escape certain logical conclusions that render his allegiance to CERN moot, leaving him in a precarious position.

Enter Giselle, Roberto's ballerina wife and muse, who offers impartial advice on what he should do with his doubts. Unfortunately her advice is flawed and they both pay a terrible price.

Spoiler Alert: Read on if you don't mind ruining the suspense of the story.

Giselle introduces Roberto to her tennis club colleague Radek, an ex Los Alamos Labs physicist, to help her husband with his doubts, and all appears to be well. But freed of his self-questioning Roberto falls prey to certain temptations of the flesh and his life falls apart. A chance door-to-door visit by some pushy Christian missionaries tips Roberto over the edge into full-blown creationism and his well-ordered life becomes a battle-zone of conflicting world-views, temptations of the flesh, blackmail, domestic violence and betrayal.
