By Blake Crouch

Love may make the world go 'round, but what happens when that world is in an infinite number of worlds at the same time? It makes things a tad more complicated. Dark Matter's Jason Dessen is happily married to his wife Daniela when an evil doppelgänger appears who wants nothing more than to steal his life—and wife. After getting stranded in a parallel dimension, Jason fights to reunite with the love of his life, gaining a renewed passion for her in the process.

The novel also raises one very important question: does it count as cheating if the person you're getting it on with is a parallel universe version of your partner?

You know—the important stuff.
