In the middle of an important meeting, businessman Rick Hamilton has a terrible premonition: His wife is about to die. Racing to save her, he finds her lifeless body in the road, her car crushed by a truck. The light dwindles from his eyes . . . and then she is alive again, begging for help, and Rick Hamilton no longer is himself, but another man with another life, and a different history.
Based on the "many worlds" theory of quantum physics, which posits the existence of parallel universes, "The Man Who Turned Into Himself" is a suspenseful, mind-bending mystery that addresses our deepest questions about reality, death, identity, and the mind.
