Finished Coincidence. I give it 3 out 5 stars. Our protagonist - George Daly, writes a book about coincidences and then finds himself in several disturbing coincidences of his own. And to complete his personal Twilight Zone - George runs into his evil twin he never knew he had. Evil twin sends nasty people George's way and with his brother out of the way assumes George's identity, takes over his life and his marriage (or what's left of it). Midway thru the book, the story went sci-fi and it appears they're all living in some kind of quantum computer and Mr. caretaker has to fix a glitch by removing either George or Larry his twin. OR is that all just a figment of George's imagination? Was there really an evil Larry going around killing folks or was it George all along doing a Jekyll & Hyde? Good interesting read, interspersed with real coincidences from history.

Anyway only 3 out of 5 as the ending was a bit predictable. Might check out Ambrose's Superstition; which I'm told is far better.

Starting on Lee Child's One Shot. An autographed copy by the man when he was in Auckland. I had expected a large burly ex-SAS type (from reading all his previous books) but Mr Child turned out just a regular guy; soft spoken and very approachable.
