Reading suggestion- what some scientists sometimes (luckily not too often) do?

Fiction reading suggestion:

צללי מדענים

It is a tale of scientists and their quest to succeed , even at the cost of their married life or honest conduct they are expected to have. Nowadays money also plays a role and a scientist whose unethical conduct in science is also mirrored in his greed, which leads him to propel to a new life on the edge. The encounters with more honest scientists eventually force him to escape to China, where he can exercise his dubious morale. Another looses his wife since he prefers the chase after the Nobel, a trophy that eventually falls into the hands of his intellectual rival, who never really sacrificed his life for it. It describes the shadowy side of many contemporary scientists who are no more role models.Sometimes amusing but sometimes not so funny…..
