Fifty-years-ago, the United States created the most powerful weapon of all time, capable of destroying not just the Earth, but the entire Universe - then managed to lose it. Now, it's been found, by a thirteen-year-old boy, named Alex Graham, who decides to sell it on eBay.As a result, Alex finds himself the target of US Intelligence, foreign governments, international arms dealers, fundamentalist Christians, an insane United States President and, of course, Islamic terrorists. His only hope is a CIA Agent, named Charlie Draper.The problem is, Charlie is a broken man. Tormented by the death of his wife and daughter, Charlie has stopped caring much about anything. When Alex is orphaned by German Neo-Nazi soldiers-of-fortune, the two are thrown together on a desperate, dangerous and epic journey to find the meaning of life, the universe and everything and, hopefully, some half decent reason to keep it all going.Ranging from laugh-out-loud comedy to, at times, heartfelt anguish, Chaos Theory is reminiscent of both the dark satire of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five and the outlandish wit of Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
