What happens when love doesn’t add up?
Dr Paul MacMillan is a professor of Chaos Theory. His specialist subject is storm patterns. A month after the death of his father, Paul’s life has ground to a halt. With his itinerant ne’er do well brother, Chancer, in his spare room, his girlfriend, Emma, pushing for a future, and the arrival of a beautiful new PhD student, Zainab, prediction is proving increasingly difficult. Then the discovery of his father’s final and surprise possession catapults Paul’s world into real chaos.
