A very solid premise is undermined by a lack of depth. Catherine Allingham is is considered the smartest person alive, and possibly the world's greatest detective. She picks up an intelligent assistant for his brain and muscle as she is heading out to investigate the world's first allegedly quantum crime. Her character hook? An inoperable brain tumor that will kill her in 6 months, and she wants to answer the one question no one else has. What lies beyond death. This is all a very solid base, but the crime, the investigation, and the one lingering mystery undercut the premise a bit.
