How I Met Myself / David A. HillThe book
One icy winter's evening in Budapest, John Taylor is on his way home from the office when a man runs into him and knocks him over. The man turns to say sorry and John is amazed at what he sees: the man is John's double. The double rushes away but leaves no footprints in the snow. Over the next year it becomes clear to John that the meeting was no accident and that his double has a very important message to give him. His relationship with his wife declined from time to time because he had spent most of time investigating the reason he met the double and his wife said he was going crazy. Thinking about the incident, John remembered. That day the cafe owner asked John Taylor's wife to help him look after his cafe as he wanted to send his mother to the doctors. When John reached home, he saw a note lefty his wife informing him that she brought his daughter along to the cafe. Then he realized that his double was giving him a message about the danger his wife and daughter faced.
