Improbable is a 2005 Science Fiction Thriller novel by author
Adam Fawer. It is the story of a gifted young man named David Caine, who has been troubled by debilatating epilleptic seizures to the extent that his medical condition has thrown his life completely off track. He frequently gambles, and goes in debt to the local mafia.
During the course of the book, David Caine undergoes an experimental medical treatment in an attempt to set his life straight. After the procedure, however, he discovers that he is able to make predictions using his enhanced calculative skills, and change the future based on his discoveries.
A major aspect of the book which has received a good deal of praise is the unique cover art, which features a lenticular three dimensional image which shifts as the book is moved in relation to the viewer.
