Set in 19thC Britain and 20thC Los Angeles, this is a juicy Gothic romance and intriguing medical thriller. A geneticist impassioned by her work is seeking to isolate the gene that produces sociopathic killers. Her research brings her to the story of an ancestor married to a scientist with a devastating secret. Both women deal with the betrayal of lovers and the struggle to succeed in fields dominated by men.

I wasn't surprised to learn that Tobsha Learner is a screenwriter- this novel often read like a screenplay in search of a bookshelf. Interesting but a bit shallow.
