1 Fawer, Adam Improbable: A Novel
HarperTorch 2006 006073678X / 9780060736781 Paperback Very Good 
As Sherlock Holmes once said, "When you have eliminated the impossible, wha tever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." Or as fourth-year Co lumbia statistics Ph.D. student David Caine tells his class in this science -driven, action-packed thriller, "[W]hen the chances of being wrong are min uscule, you have probably discovered the truth." Caine, a compulsive gamble r, has just seen his sure-thing poker hand go bad, leaving him deep in debt to a Russian gangster. He can't skip town because he's started an experime ntal treatment for his temporal lobe epilepsy--a treatment that allows him to tap into the collective unconscious, a parallel universe known as the ev erywhen, where innumerable futures exist for him to choose from. Needless t o say, this makes Caine a valuable commodity, and he's soon on the run from a number of government agencies, none having his best interests at heart. His schizophrenic twin brother, Jasper, aids him in his flight, as does tou gh female rogue CIA agent Nava Vaner. It's difficult to keep the competing bad guys straight, and discussions of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, E instein's theory of relativity, Schrödinger's cat, Laplace's demon and prob ability theory tend to slow things down. But the success of The Rule of Fou r and The Da Vinci Code have shown that plenty of readers enjoy their scien ce, as long as there's a compelling plot encircling it, which there is here .
