Publisher's Summary

The future has already happened.

It is expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen.

A bus will take them to the mall. They will have an hour or so to look around. Perhaps buy something, or try the food.

A minor traffic incident on the way back to the resort will provide some additional interest - but the tour rep has no reason to expect any trouble.

Until he notices that one of his party is missing.

Most disturbingly, she is a woman who, according to the records, did not go missing.

Now she is a woman whose disappearance could change the world.

With breathtaking plot twists that ricochet through time, this is the most original conspiracy thriller you will hear this year.

Critic Reviews

"Welcome to the 21st Century. Please don't feed the natives....Dickinson's literary prose glides through the plot thickets with graceful assurance....Echoes of Bradbury and Orwell, in the service of a crackerjack conspiracy plot; a seductively intriguing work of speculative fiction." ( Kirkus)

Disappointed

I was disappointed in this book. It is confusing ( it could be less confusing in print ) the main character is, while not horrible or a bad personality or anything, flat and uninteresting. The plot might have been good but it was undermined by the point of view and flat delivery.
I kind of wish I hadn't spent a credit on it.

intriguing story asks questions it fails to answer

The writing is passable, story is intriguing if confusing w/many twists and turns that ultimately result in a dead end. instantly forgettable, sorry to say.

Terrible

This book is too difficult to understand. The British accent is incomprehensible. The story makes no sense. Watching paint dry is more enjoyable.
