"The God Particle is the twisting, turning tale of Ricardo Alomar's fight to make sense of his broken world. The premise is true high-concept sci-fi, with the company building a kind of time-displacement generator utilizing the Higgs boson -- the so-called "God Particle."
Acclaimed comic writer and cartoonist behind Rock Opera, Rod Keirkegaard Jr builds on the success of Obama Jones & The Logic Bomb with his latest Science Fiction novel, The God Particle.
Driven not only the death of his friends but also the unexplained disappearance of their bodies from the morgue, Ricardo Alomar, in tandem with a foul-mouthed, sexually harassing female cop, discovers the secret of the Higgs Boson machine and the startling truth behind the disappearances. But the answer is utterly unlike anything he'd ever expected.----
"I've been a fan of Rod Kierkegaard Jr. since the 1970s. Ever since first reading his comics it has been a passion of mine to seek out his work. His unique style of illustration and sense of humor have always captured my imagination, and so I was pleased when I learned he had written a novel. While the writing may sometimes be reminiscent of Philip K. Dick or Kurt Vonnegut, there's no question that the voice remains unmistakably and uniquely Kierkegaard's own." -T McNamara, Amazon review of Obama Jones & The Logic Bomb
