For years, Catherine has taken care of her father, a genius mathematician whose mind slowly unraveled. When his former student Hal arrives to investigate hundreds of cryptic notebooks, a romance begins to kindle—until Hal makes a startling discovery. Catherine must decide: how much of her father’s genius—and madness—might she have inherited? And who can she really trust?
