Synopsis

'Dual' is a futuristic thriller with a twist. Detective Denton Gill and Catherine Jumeau share an extraordinarily profound connection, yet meet for the first time by chance following the assassination of the President of the United States. Catherine's disturbing visions of the dead President reveal a menace at the heart of American political life. In extreme danger, they face an almighty struggle to alter the course of history and thereby prevent the world around them succumbing to dark forces. In so doing they open up new and frightening possibilities for the future of mankind itself.

Some time in the near future, U.S. Vice President Ellis Garfield is addressing the nation, relaying the news of President John Montgomery's assassination. Catherine, a PhD student at Harvard under the supervision of world-famous physicist Walter Melrose, is the only person to see Garfield's face suddenly twist and contort to reveal the anguished features of the dead President. Her fellow students, in whom she confides, then disappear. Gill, a somewhat unorthodox detective with the local Boston police, is called in to investigate, but discovers far more than he bargained for.

Catherine and Gill are 'entangled', the corollary of which is that they can super-position, or project themselves to a different place and time. We follow Catherine and Gill on a roller-coaster journey to find the truth about the President's assassination. In the process, revelations about Montgomery, Garfield and Melrose expose the presence of a terrible threat to the very fabric of our world. Our entangled pair must use their ability to super-position - or 'dual' - to seek justice and change the course of history in order to avoid a future in which the world becomes a volatile theatre of covert war. A shocking conclusion leaves us pondering entanglement and the nature of our existence in the Universe.
