Something quite strange has happened at a particle collider in the States. We don’t find out exactly what to start with, as the story starts with a vivid image of roiling clouds contained above a Point Zero, and a protagonist who is able to move between ‘places’. The story and the explanation unfold nicely, with some strong human characters in it, and the tension ramps as the impact on the two primary characters is explored.
