The Breakthrough is the second short story in Daphne DuMaurier's Don't Look Now and Other Stories. Stephen Saunders is an engineer who is sent to work on a secret experiment. The experiment involves a computer that hypnotises a dying boy in hopes of finding out what's on the other side. It's like Flatliner's but lamer. I do enjoy DuMaurier's writing style but this one didn't do it for me. Maybe it was a bit dated.
