Questa è l. a. sensazione che trasmette questo libro, come il caso può cambiare una situazione apparentemente normale e farla diventare pericolosa o strana, o ambedue le cose contemporaneamente. In “Le sei facce di un dado” sfileranno, tra le storie, delle misteriose equazioni matematiche che possono trasformare los angeles realtà che ci circonda, pellicole cinematografiche che sembrano prendere vita o escursioni in montagna durante le quali los angeles tranquillità sarà l. a. sola invitata che non si presenterà.

“Le sei facce di un dado” è formato da sei storie di intrighi. Ognuna di esse è diversa dalle altre, ha uno stile e un tema propri. Nonostante questo, tutte sono collegate da un filo conduttore: il destino dei personaggi è assoggettato al caso.
