Many readers will not finish Here & There by Joshua Scher because of the length (638 pages), the structure, and complexity of the novel as well as the advanced scientific concepts. Some might term it a literary experiment. Scher focuses on a son's search for his mother, a criminal psychologist, Dr. Hilary Kahn, and her report on the Reidier Test that resulted in the disappearance of Karek Reidier and his family. All was hushed up by the government.
According to the publisher quantum entanglements and teleportation collide, affecting humanity’s future. Some will find the physics interesting while others will focus on conspiracies. In short, something for differing viewpoints and interests.
There are human relations such as Dan's search for his mother, Reidier and his wife Eve with their family, Reidier and his bosses, and various governmental agencies. Egos drive much of the action and conspiracies abound.
According to the author, "Einstein, was wrong." In his fifteen second pitch on Amazon, a boom followed the words. An exploding universe or a put on? This is a book for the dedicated few.
