Odds Against Tomorrow by Nathaniel Rich takes place at an unspecified point in the future and follows Mitchell Zukor, a man obsessed with the inherent risks that surround us everyday. After being hired as a catastrophe consultant to an insurance company designed to help corporations avoid paying out, his philosophy is put to the test when a cataclysmic flood threatens New York City. Kirkus Reviews touted the book as one, “With […] fits of paranoia and eerily prescient scenario, this book is not comfortable reading, but it's also nearly impossible to put down”.
