A Near Fine first UK edition/first printing in alike dust-jacket.

Stuart Ressler, a brilliant molecular biologist in his mid-twenties, sets out in 1957 to crack the genetic code. His efforts are side-tracked by other demanding codes - social, moral, musical, spiritual. He falls in love with a married member of his research team, Jeanette Koss. His passion for her as well as a growing understanding of the pattern-making and pattern-searching urge underwriting all life lead Russler to abandon science and disappear (from the dust-jacket).
