Uncertainty is a darkly erotic, tautly plotted psychological thriller. It marks the American debut of the exciting young Danish writer Michael Larsen. Martin Molberg, a tabloid journalist with a history of mental instability,is suspected of murdering his girlfriend, Monique. To clear his name Molberg must track down the real killer. In the process he uncovers evidence that Monique was leading a double life: a photo of her engaged in kinky sex; an inexplicable deposit of millions in their joint bank account; a cryptic note from a man named Pascal. Molberg's obsessive search takes him from Copenhagen to Los Angeles. Along the way he stumbles into the realm of high technology gone awry and a web of intrigue and murder involving Hollywood, the National Security Agency, pornographers, and image manipulators. Downing Dexedrine and Thorazine with scotch chasers, he begins to question his sense of reality as he sifts through circuitous and contradictory evidence. The more he discovers, the harder it becomes for him to distinguish what is real and what is not. With the verve of William Gibson and the sophisticated suspense of Michael Crichton, Uncertainty is a distrubing vision of life in the postcomputer age.
