Quantum theory posts the existence of a multiverse, and this pacy SF adventure story is set in one. There are 100s of alternatives worlds and 100s of versions of yourself – but you can only travel to a world where your doppleganger is dead. Cara is dead in most of them which makes her both valuable and dangerous because she can identify versions of others from her world intent on evil in their new one. A mind-blowing and twisty read.
I open my mouth to give the company line, that we have been visited but they just haven't been detected, but they freeze. What if there are too few Adam Boschs who aren't bloodthirsty emperors? How many Nik Seniors let their eldest sons live? How many Adraniks killed their fathers and took their places?
I could tell her this, but I am not sure why she wants to know.
'I don't know. I never asked.'
