Review quote

'It offers a diverse cast of characters dealing with thought-provoking issues: bullying, sexuality, love, loss, death, mental health issues, aging and the choices we make' Crime Review. 'A superb novel ... Contriving plot, motive, and opportunity, when time travel and multiple selves are in play, must be head-scratching indeed ... Flawless' Geek Dad. 'A bold and marvellous read. It gives you an appreciation for all things mortal and unknowing and brief' Max Dunbar Blog. 'Mascarenhas has thought through all the mechanics of time travel in dazzling detail, and the question of how sidestepping chronology might transform a person is every bit as absorbing as the central mystery [...] of this ambitious, brain-bending story' In the Moment magazine.
