Description - Dante's Equation by Jane Jensen
Rabbi Aharon Handalman's expertise with Torah code - rearranging words and letters in the Bible - has uncovered a man's name. Who is Yosef Kobinksi, and why did God hide his name in His sacred text? To find the answers, Aharon begins an investigation, and discovers that Kobinksi, a Polish rabbi, was not only a mystic but also a brilliant physicist. In Seattle, Jill Talcott's work with energy wave equations is being linked to Yosef Kobinksi, now deceased, who claimed to discover an actual physical law of good and evil. But when Jill's lab explodes, she is forced to flee for her life, realising her cutting-edge research is far more dangerous than she ever had imagined. Now Jill, her co-researcher, and a writer meet Handalman and trace Kobinksi to Auschwitz. They find the inexplicable: Kobinksi, drawing on his own alchemy of science and the Kabbalah, made himself vanish from the death camp. With intelligence agents hot on their trail, the investigators must follow Kobinksi - to wherever he may have gone ...

UK Kirkus Review »
Did Yosef Kobinski, a Polish rabbi and a victim of the Holocaust, disappear in a flash of light? Did he really find some `gateway` out of the hell of Auschwitz and into another universe? Jill Talcott, a young physicist, is reluctantly forced to accept this when her research into wave-patterns, sixty years later, come to an explosive climax. Rabbi Aharon Handalman reads the codes of the Torah and uncovers the name Yosef Kobinski. He discovers that Kobinski was a brilliant physicist who appears to have made a life-changing discovery. Freelance journalist, Denton Wyle starts by investigating unexplainable disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle but, like the others, is soon embroiled in the mysteries of black holes and time travel. But powerful people from the US Department of Defence are also on Kobinski`s - and therefore Jill Talcott`s - trail, for these experiments have the potential to produce a weapon that could create all kinds of terrible disasters in an enemy's country without them ever knowing what (or who) was causing it. A fast-moving sci-fi thriller which explores the concepts of good and evil alongside breathtaking scientific discovery. (Kirkus UK)
