Jaime Mendoza, glamorous head pro football coach, suspects that someone is giving players performance-enhancing drugs. But the testing procedures suggest that the athletes are clean. Thank goodness he has super-sleuths in the family.

Theoretical physicist Bonnie Mendoza gets involved in this exciting tale of what appears to be a sports steroid cover-up--but can she prove it? And what is the link to Titan, the giant moon of Saturn? She and Dr. Alexander Darkkin uncovers a biogenetic-terrorism plot that is about something far more sinister than altering the point spread. Can they stop the evil Dr. Malachi Argon and his greatest creation before it's too late? And will the strangest team-up of all time lead to salvation or World War III--by shooting off nukes in a borrowed Russian submarine?

This book, a sequel to "Specific Gravity," takes place about 3 years from the end of that book. Alex and Bonnie are married now, and she has just finished her Ph.D. at Caltech, and is contemplating her next career move. But her plans take an unexpected turn as she helps her brother investigate a possible steroid scandal.

The past sins of Rad Darkkin and the future consequences of his actions for mankind are contemplated; no one has heard from him in 3 years, and some think him dead, as he is "off the grid." But is he still alive? And would that be a good thing?

This book explores the horrors of eugenics and genetic experimentation, and shows what happens when someone plays God with nature, with something beyond human comprehension.

A major character falls into the abyss of mental illness, and creates problems for everyone--but will she be able to come back to reality and resolve the conflicts with her father before it is too late?
