New Yorker Max Slade may have made his fortune as a venture capitalist, but when a dead body shows up at Delmar County Club, he has an opportunity to make a name for himself in a new capacity: private investigator. When Max and his new wife, Imogen, receive a personal plea for help, they use their insider status to ferret out a golf course killer among the east coast elite. But what Max uncovers is a web of lies, big money, and priceless art. And when he starts poking his nose in the wrong places, Max suddenly find himself the object of a killer’s desire. But, with a glass of scotch, his brilliant wife, and a little luck, he just might be able to catch the killer before his latest venture goes bust... and he winds up in the morgue.

In this groundbreaking book, award-winning physicist David Deutsch argues that explanations have a fundamental place in the universe—and that improving them is the basic regulating principle of all successful human endeavor. Taking us on a journey through every fundamental field of science, as well as the history of civilization, art, moral values, and the theory of political institutions, Deutsch tracks how we form new explanations and drop bad ones, explaining the conditions under which progress—which he argues is potentially boundless—can and cannot happen. Hugely ambitious and highly original, The Beginning of Infinity explores and establishes deep connections between the laws of nature, the human condition, knowledge, and the possibility for progress.
