9780060736781: Improbable

Michael Crichton meets A Beautiful Mind in this thinking man's thriller based on probability theory and quantum physics. David Caine's life is spinning out of control. A compulsive gambler who can't work because he's plagued by epileptic seizures, Caine's dropped out of normal society, opting instead to spend his nights trolling Manhattan's underground poker clubs. A mathematical genius, Caine wins more than he loses - that is, until one night when he makes a miscalculation that costs him money he doesn't have - right before experiencing his most powerful seizure ever. So he agrees to try an experimental drug to control the seizures. Shortly after he takes the yellow pill, he finds himself at a diner with friends where he envisions a truck coming through the window and killing them all. Confused and disbelieving, he nonetheless gets his friends out of harms way in the nick of time. From that moment his life is changed. Unsure whether he has gained the gift of second sight or is merely losing his mind, Caine embarks on a journey that stretches beyond the realm of what he has always thought of as possible into world that can only be described as...IMPROBABLE.
