"This is a classic murder mystery set in the world of particle physics, and it's a dark matter indeed!

"Nova Jacobs's novel is a gripping murder mystery. But it's also so much more--it's an invitation into the secretive world of CERN, an exploration of the limits of science, and a haunting reminder of how easily we can be made to believe the unthinkable. A dark and absorbing novel, The Stars Turned Inside Out will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about the scientific method and academic competition."

"An engrossing whodunit revolving around Geneva's Large Hadron Collider... Jacobs bestows even minor characters with such convincing motives that the plot's momentum never slows, no matter how complex things get. Golden age mystery fans will love this."
--Publishers Weekly
"Jacobs elevates the death-in-the-workplace trope to staggering heights in this science-based thriller that fuses physics and philosophy in mindbending ways...
