The perfect life of publisher Rick Hamilton starts cracking after a series of apparently inexplicable accidents, culminating in a sudden sense of death during a business meeting.
Indeed, someone has been torn apart by the twisted metals of Anne’s (Hamilton’s wife) car. But who actually died? His wife or his son Charlie?
Skillfully playing with parallel dimensions, time travels, and the quantum theory, David Ambrose creates a psychological thriller where multiple personality is described as the presence of two similar identities in the same body, and planes of reality overlap like a delusion.
The originality of this novel lays in its psychoanalytical approach, brilliantly using some sci-fi norms to create a unique and totally unpredictable plot. A book you won’t forget.
