"Thanatos"in Greek mythology cheated "Death" by assuming to be an animal. Great prose with an interesting premise, it centers on a paroled psychologist who has at one time made a "breakthrough" discovery. Now he is faced with secret and illegal dealings by (what else) BIG money, BIG enterprise, BIG egos, and whatever. A nuclear power plant is adulterating the water supply, but to what end? The end will surprise you, the story entertain you, the theme disgust you. But, read it anyway.
