A Physicist's Thriller

Cornell physics professor Paul McEuen has published a sci-fi thriller novel. I have never been a big fan of thrillers (except for Michael Jackson's song, of course), though I feel inspired every time one of my fellow scientists publishes a novel. I'll do that one day too.

Paul has a few more grey hairs now, but one of my first thoughts the first time I saw him over a bit over a decade ago was that he looked like John Lennon. (I talked to Paul about some stuff related to me PhD dissertation when he first came to Cornell while I was in graduate school.)
