The Physicists

The PhysicistsT115099726
Another nurse murdered in the world's most illustrious sanatorium. And who's to blame this time: Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein or the brilliant Johann Wilhelm Mobius? But what are these great minds doing here, together at the same time? Who are these men? And what have they got to hide?
Author Friedrich Durrenmatt
