Fantastic book that reads like a mystery. Reminds me of "All the President's Men" in that we know that the mystery has been solved, that we may even know the answer, but what was the investigative process? Great way for anyone to see the connection between science and literature, and to see how some assumptions about a society and its people can lead to incorrect conclusions.
