Hi, I was just reviewing my recent book additions and noticed you had recently added The D-H Mind by Sagan. There was much I find too familiar with the book to feel we'll ever get ourselves out of the same old traps, indeed even the behavior of scientists themselves can be descend into the subjective and fear-driven. I also see you like detective stories, so you obviously like to have your mind tested to the full.

Anyway my own book Convergence documents the surprisingly cut-throat world of science and reflects the real-world experiences of tens of thousands of young researchers everywhere. There are four main storylines, each involving a woman seemingly unrelated to the other three. Convergence begins by slowly taking the reader into the world of science and discovery, an apparently benign culture full of supportive people. However, despite the moral purity of the four main protagonists, sinister undercurrents undermine each storyline as the novel progresses. Thus, although starting out purely as a science mystery, Convergence develops into a slow-burning political drama. At the core of the novel are ethical and moral issues that are frequently revisited throughout the book, echoing similar themes contained within The Demon Haunted World and Contact (by Carl Sagan).

Subject to availability, a limited number of free copies of Convergence have been set aside for review purposes. Send email to Christopher Turner at general@convergence-cpt.com if you wish to have a free copy for review. Please mention Library Thing in the body of your email.

Thanks
