Publisher's Summary

Dr. Eldon Chance is a brilliant forensic neuropsychologist with a long track record of getting involved with damaged women. After separating from his wife, a series of bad decisions leads to Chance sleeping with a patient named Jaclyn Blackstone. Unfortunately her ex-husband is an Oakland homicide detective and the jealous type.

Meanwhile, Dr. Chance meets a young man who goes by "D", who is fascinated by the dangerous affair with Jaclyn and advises Chance that her ex-husband will find a way to destroy him. As Detective Blackstone does indeed threaten the doctor, Chance and D plan a counter-strike. Meanwhile Chance continues his steamy affair with Jaclyn, who has a story that is far more complex and darker than he could have ever imagined....

    "Disappointing"

    I love Hugh Laurie so when I saw that he is in a new show on Hulu this season, I got very excited. I then learned that the TV show "Chance" is based on this book and I thought it would be a good idea to read it before watching the show. Well, this book is not intruiging, suspenseful , or the least bit interesting. It is all over the map and you never really quite figure out what the hell the story is about. Unless they have completely recreated the story for the TV show, I cannot see myself watching it, even with Hugh Laurie.

    "can't put my finger on it..."

    but I think I hated this book. Narrator was kind of dull and story was at times hard to follow. some occasional laughs, but didn't quite care enough about any characters.

    Faced with mindless duty, when an audio book player slips into a rear pocket and mini buds pop into ears, old is made new again.

    Story
    "DERIVATIVES OF CHANCE"

    Kem Nunn’s book is a novel about derivatives of Chance; he suggests chance is an integral part of human’ nature. There is chance in genetics, in living, in parenting, in love, in health, in death. Nunn creates a story about the inadvertent nature of life. The main character of Nunn’s book—wait for it—is Dr. Chance.

    Nunn’s characters seem formulaic in the beginning but, as the story unfolds, they become unique. Chance is born into wealth, with intelligent parents that can support him through the expense of a great education. Chance is a spoiled product of an abundant life. In his early career, he falls into an ethical dilemma that nearly destroys his reputation and drives his parents to despair. In mid-life, Chance repeats his mistakes with another ethical dilemma; another broken family.

    Here we have a questionably ethical psychiatrist, a highly skilled and intelligent survivalist, a beautiful woman, and a bad cop. What could possibly go wrong? Chance is an entertaining story; expertly narrated by Adam Verner.
