An amazing book! I was caught up from the first paragraph to the end. The action never stops and as one of the reviewers said "Can't put it down". I agree totally!

A great thriller and page turner, one of my all time favorites.

Great book, engaging characters, the best book on time travel I've ever read. I'd recommend this book to anyone.
This is the first Dean Koontz book I've ever read, now I consider him one of my favourite writers.

My favorite time travel book EVER.

I loved this book. It took a very complex subject and presented it in a very simple way without taking the awe out of it. The characters are delightful. This was the first Koontz book I ever read and I'm now on a Koontz kick, hoping to read them all.

One of Koontz' best novels. Certainly one of the best time travel stories I've read. Intriguing, suspenseful, action-filled.
