Summary

The Man Booker prize-winning novelist and poet, Ben Okri makes his Crime debut in this series with a daringly ambitious story that crosses genre. Detective Drapper feels the world is out of kilter as he investigates an alleged crime. There is a witness but no body. And then the facts begin to shift and what should be impossible seems to be happening at every turn.

Why can no one else see the truth as it soon becomes plain to Drapper and how is he to solve a problem when the very fabric of reality is torn?

Very clever & well written

Very clever & well written for the layman. Even drove me to get my dusty copy of Schrödinger Cat down off the bookshelf for the first time in years xx Nice to know it is inspiring thought and I think this short story is written intriguingly enough to make others explore a bit of quantum physics xx
