»As always, Paretsky has done extensive research, and her dense, gratifyingly brief scientific explanations link together the betrayal, theft and murder at the novel’s core. The links between characters, past and present, are less crisp. It is easy to lose track of the connections between relatives, let alone physicists. And the introduction of a student turned Nazi torturer, turned anti-nuclear activist, is perhaps one twist too many.«
