Overview

It caused a hell of a fuss when they found Willard in his office, bloody, splayed out on the floor, chair overturned. Evan Olsson is stunned. Inside a top-secret lab, behind layers of security, his mentor is suddenly and violently dead. Even worse, a mysterious message hints of a deadly plot that threatens the US electrical network. How can Evan deal with all this when he's got problems of his own? His love life stinks, and his closest friend is a computer program barely smart enough to say "hello."

Evan takes over the mentor's project and with a reluctant FBI partner uses computer science and nanotechnology to unravel the mystery. With his personal safety at risk he tracks the mastermind to the Malibu area, but the criminals up the stakes by paralyzing a regional energy network, accelerating their plans for a devastating national attack just days away. Nature disrupts everything with a disaster that helps Evan unmask the criminals but requires him to flee for his life.

Death By Probability pursues a mysterious death to its ultimate secret. Technology and fringe science, friendship and romance, computer intelligence and human frailty -- all these help solve a mystery that builds to a fast-paced climax.
