In the near future of Rich’s second novel, disaster is big business. The author of The Mayor’s Tongue follows the career of Mitchell Zukor, a mathematician hired to calculate worst-case scenarios—then sell the information to companies so they can indemnify themselves against catastrophes. Despite the planning, there’s still room for unexpected events, both in Zukor’s life and in this new culture of fear.
