Book Synopsis



'Amazing! One of the twistiest time-tales I've ever read' Diana Gabaldon

'Crichtonesque thrillers don't come much better than this intricate outing which combines a fantastic premise - a time-travel device known as Absolom is used to imprison dangerous criminals in the prehistoric past - with a closed-circle whodunit... Riddle keeps the twists coming, including a mind-bending jaw-dropper that sets up the book's second half. By creating sympathetic and complex characters, the author makes suspending disbelief easy. Readers won't be able to turn the pages fast enough' Publishers Weekly Starred Review

When his daughter is falsely accused of murder, a scientist must travel 200 million years into the past to save her. But there are secrets waiting there. And more than her life is at stake.

From the worldwide bestselling author of Departure and Winter World comes a standalone novel with a twist you'll never see coming.

Control the Past.
Save the Future.

One morning, Dr. Sam Anderson wakes up to discover that the woman he loves has been murdered.

For Sam, the horror is only beginning.

He and his daughter are accused of the crime.

The evidence is ironclad. They will be convicted.
And so, Sam does what he must: he confesses to the crime.

But in the future, murderers aren't sent to prison.

They're sent to the past.

Two hundred million years into the past - to the age of the dinosaurs - to live out their lives alone, in exile from the human race.

Sam accepts his fate.

But his daughter doesn't.

Adeline Anderson has already lost her mother to a deadly and unfair disease. She can't bear to lose her father.

She sets out on a quest to prove him innocent. And get him back. People around her insist that both are impossible tasks.

But Adeline doesn't give up. She only works harder.

She soon learns that impossible tasks are her specialty. And that she is made of tougher stuff that she ever imagined.

As she peels back the layers of the mystery that ripped her father from this world, Adeline finds more questions than answers. Everyone around her is hiding a secret. But which ones are connected to the murder that exiled her father? That mystery stretches across the past, present, and future - and leads to a revelation that will change everything.



Review Quotes




"Crichtonesque thrillers don't come much better than this intricate outing from Riddle (The Extinction Trials), which combines a fantastic premise--a time-travel device known as Absolom is used to imprison dangerous criminals in the prehistoric past--with a closed-circle whodunit. . . . Riddle keeps the twists coming, including a mind-bending jaw-dropper that sets up the book's second half. By creating sympathetic and complex characters, the author makes suspending disbelief easy. Readers won't be able to turn the pages fast enough." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The book picks up like a great roller coaster. With a nod to John Varley's Millenium, the thrills in this mystery are not so much about who the killer is but how to save lives while maintaining their time line." --Booklist
