Quantum Night

LONGLISTED FOR CANADA READS 2017

Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost the memories of six months of his life from twenty years ago–a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend and now a quantum physicist, who has made a discovery about the nature of human consciousness. They combine forces in a race against time to see if they can change human nature.
