Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.577 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The quantum mechanical issues in the story are real, as far as I can determine. This is a Quantum Mechanical Caper story!

Con: I found the ending impossible to believe. Vegas casinos don’t have to break the law to make big money. Rutledge would have little to gain and everything to lose by going along with this deal.
