David Ambrose, COINCIDENCE - Hcvr - Rog David Ambrose, COINCIDENCE - Hcvr - Rog
Simon & Schuster UK. First Edn. "Fascinated by the world of coincidence and synchronicity, George Daley decides to write a book on the subject. While doing some research, the most remarkable coincidence of his life occurs - he runs into Larry Hart, the identical twin brother he never knew he had. But as George gets to know this newfound brother, strange things start to happen. As he delves deeper into the mystery of the true identity of his twin, George discovers the real reason coincidences occur - and why they are not so innocent as they seem." [4]

"Wonderful novel! Certainly the best novel of 2001 as far as I'm concerned and as I thought last year's novel by Ambrose, THE DISCREET CHARM OF CHARLIE MONK, was one of the best three novels of 2000, this now puts Ambrose up there with my other 'must read' favourites - Jonathan Carroll, Christopher Priest, Christopher Evans, Graham Joyce, Ken Grimwood, Eric Brown, etc," Rog.
