Few revolutions in science have been more far-reaching—but less understood—than the quantum revolution in physics. Everyday experience cannot prepare us for the sub-atomic world, where quantum effects become all-important.

In the world of quantum mechanics, uncertainty and ambiguity become not just unavoidable, but essent

Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone.
