Robert J. Sawyer has proven himself to be "a writer of boundless confidence and bold scientific extrapolation" (The New York Times). Now, the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author explores the thin line between good and evil that every human being is capable of crossing...

Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from twenty years previously--a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend from his lost period and now a quantum physicist who has made a stunning discovery about the nature of human consciousness. As a rising tide of violence and hate sweeps across the globe, the psychologist and the physicist combine forces in a race against time to see if they can do the impossible--change human nature--before the entire world descends into darkness.

ROBERT J. SAWYER lives in Toronto. He has won both the Hugo and Nebula awards for best novel, as well as the Crime Writers of Canada's Arthur Ellis Award for mystery fiction. The ABC TV series FLASHforward was based on his novel of the same name. Visit him on the Web at www.sfwriter.com, facebook.com/RobertJSawyer, and twitter.com/Ro...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spooky Is Robert Sawyer a time traveler? Because this novel, published last year, kind of feels like the news I see on TV today! A racist, psychopath, becomes president of the US and starts changing immigration laws? Yep, happening now, predicted in the book. But it's so much more! Loved the story. Ethics, psychopaths, mind-zombies, it all feels to real! #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read! I received an ARC of Quantum Night through my work and was quite happy about it! I took it home and basically read it in two sittings. Without summarizing the book, I will say that I was happy with the character development throughout the story and that the book read more like a psychological thriller than science fiction. It was thought provoking and kept me turning the pages. And now I am really paranoid about who might be the psychopaths around me.... thank you Robert J. Sawyer.....thank you....
