Welcome to Los Alamos, where the big-brained boys and girls are at it again. But atoms have become passe: now its the Higgs boson, which they are using to develop a clean, efficient weapon of mini-destruction, mysteriously dropping bodies and groups of bodies into junior black holes within a fifty mile radius. Moreover, they are accomplishing this perfidy in comic rhyming quatrains. Can an intrepid group of six amateur do-gooders resolve the mystery and prevent the unleashing of this new WMD? With the help of several Doberman pinschers, a vasifactive Kentucky writer and his vivacious muse, Herr Morguemeister, and Verdis Otello, a resolution seems just possible.
