    This collection of unabridged, unforgettable tales, written by some of science fiction's most esteemed authors, pays homage to one of the genre's most cherished story types. Whether time travel stories leap forward in time or slip into the past, they remain popular with fans.

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Don't know. Good story but couldn't finish book due to irritating narration!


    How could the performance have been better?

    I agree with other reviewers,If Mr.Dufris knew anything about the first book in the series he would have known the correct pronunciation of "Kovacs." Todd McLaren is Takeshi Kovacs!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Mr.Dufris was fine for some other books I've listened to, but just wrong for this series.


    Any additional comments?

    If Mr.Morgan has any say in who narrates his work, he should have known better.

    Attacked and injected with a drug that slows his metabolism to a fraction of normal, Martin James becomes an unwilling time traveler who hurtles through the years. His children grow up, his wife grows older, and his only hope is finding the people who injected him in the first place - not an easy task when one day for Martin lasts four years. And while Martin James strives to find a cure before everyone he loves is gone, others are uncertain if his journey can be stopped at all.

    I managed to get through the whole book but it was very dull. Kept waiting for some kind of action that didn't happen until the last few chapters. Too little to late.
