The Dark Side of the Sun - Terry Pratchett6.88

Dom Sabalos, the young heir to the Sabalos dynasty has a strangely uncertain future.

Probability math, the infallible science of foretelling the future, has predicted his assassination in twenty-four hours. But, by an extraordinary paradox, it has also predicted that he will go on to discover the fabulous, almost mythical world of the Jokers – the gods of the universe.

When, by a million to one chance, Dom survives the assassination attempt, he takes his destiny in his hands and sets out in search of the Jokers.

But there are strange powers at play. Who, for example, is responsible for the robot assassin with built-in luck that has been put on his tail? Who, or what, is protecting him every time it strikes? And where is this mysterious world which, according to legend, lies on the dark side of the sun?
