Read full description of the books:
In a Seattle research laboratory, Dr. David Harrison has accidentally stumbled upon something truly remarkable: the Twistor Effect, an unparalleled scientific phenomenon that opens doors into numerous alternate universes. His discovery is a breakthrough of earth-shattering proportions & the most dangerous find of the century, for it offers unlimited power to anyone who possesses its secrets. Now David Harrison has become the target of industrial spies and cold-blooded corporate killers - forcing him to seek sanctuary in a strange and unexplored "shadow world." But there's no telling what awaits him beyond its portals. And, once inside, he might never escape.

Read information about the authorJohn G. Cramer (born October 24, 1934) is a professor of physics at the University of Washington in Seattle, the United States. When not teaching, he works with the STAR (Solenoidal Tracker At RHIC) detector at the new Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the particle accelerator at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. He is currently engaged in experiments at the University of Washington to test retrocausality by using a version of the delayed choice quantum eraser without coincidence counting. This experiment, if successful, would imply that entanglement can be used to send a signal instantaneously between two distant locations (or a message backwards in time from the apparatus to itself). Such "spooky communication" experiments have never been successfully conducted, and only attempted a limited number of times, since most physicists believe that they would violate the no-communication theorem. However, a small number of scientists (Cramer among them) believe that there is no physical law prohibiting such communication.
