They Know Not What They Do, a psychological novel set in the near future by Jussi Valtonen, grapples with the role technology plays in our relationships, for better and worse. Joe Chayefski has what he always wanted: a reputation as one of America’s top neuroscientists, a beautiful wife and two perfect daughters. But his carefully created idyll is threatened when his Baltimore neuroscience lab is targeted by animal rights activists. And shortly after the attack, Joe receives a phone call from his ex-wife Alina in Finland, whom he abandoned along with their young son Samuel two decades earlier when he returned to America to advance his career. Now Samuel is somewhere in the States, and Alina fears he is looking for revenge.Buy tickets/get more info now
