Through his indomitable will, thirty-six year old professor of particle physics Fin Canty, uncovers answers to some of science's biggest mysteries. His journey from this life to the next forges the creation of a white hole to CERNS's collider, channeling matter from beyond and offering proof of an afterlife.
In a final struggle that spans both Earthly continents and astral planes of existence, he journeys through the mulitverse to rescue his daughter - a journey that reveals the ultimate power of human will and restores faith to the world.
Fin Canty is a scientist working with the Large Hadron Collider and taking care of his daughter, Eva, who recently lost her mother. When Fin is killed and winds up in heaven, he learns the truth about the world's biggest scientific mysteries. But when Eva is subsequently killed and sent to hell Fin resolves to leave heaven and rescue his daughter. In so doing, Fin is walking into a dark conspiracy that aims to use his love of Eva and the Hadron Collider to provide irrefutable proof of life after death. Hejmanowski's convoluted novel succeeds in some ways at tackling large ideas, but tension between the pious and the scientific is nothing new. Additionally, the plot structure is shaky at best and the internal logic of the afterlife scant. Still, the book has its thrilling moments and plenty of twists to interest readers.

Exciting first novel. Couldn't put it down. Would make an extraordinary movie. Can't wait until second novel comes out.
