About this product
- DescriptionGiles Foden, the prizewinning author of The Last King of Scotland, delivers a mesmerizing blend of fact and fiction in this vel about how human beings deal with uncertainty. Five days before D-day, a team of Allied scientists is charged with making an accurate weather forecast for the landings. Henry Meadows--a young math prodigy from the Met Office--is sent to Scotland to uncover Wallace Ryman's revolutionary system for understanding turbulence, one of the last great mysteries of modern physics. But Ryman is a reclusive pacifist who stubbornly refuses to divulge his secrets, and when Henry meets Gill--Ryman's beautiful wife--events, like the weather, begin to spiral out of control.
