An Audience for Einstein by Mark Wakely

Professor Percival Marlowe is a brilliant astrophysicist who's dying, his greatest achievement still unfinished and now beyond his diminished means. Doctor Carl Dorning, a neurosurgeon, discovers a secret method of transplanting memories from one person to another using advanced technology. Miguel Sanchez, a homeless boy, agrees to become the recipient of Marlowe's knowledge and personality in this experiment, enticed by Dorning's promises of intelligence, wealth and respect, but unaware that his own identity will be lost forever. What results is a seesaw battle for control of Miguel's body.
