Product description

Product Description

   2015 San Francisco Book Festival Honorable Mention.
In 2079, a time travel experiment sends physicist Carmela Akronfleck further back in time than she'd intended. Though she's still in her small northern California town, the year is 1936 and she must learn to live without the technology she's come to rely on. Her neurological implants should be dormant, but she receives a cryptic message, periodically accompanied by an audio transmission from the future. It's the voice of her former psychotherapist, an android named Kass, stating his innocence in a series of murders occurring in 2079.

When Carmela deciphers the code as a hit list, she's shocked to discover her mother and sister are among the intended targets. Further evidence reveals the killer's true identity, but the inoperative time portal prevents her from returning to save her family and vindicate Kass.

She considers another option: hunt down the killer's ancestors and avert his existence without radically changing history. She devises a plan to protect her family, haunted by doubts that she's becoming the kind of person she's always loathed--one willing to take another's life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of surprises! 23 January 2015

This one baffled me, then shocked me, then totally surprised me! San Francisco! Mystery! Murder! But we don't find out `whodunnit' for a long time and we keep trying to figure it out and are still surprised at the end. Time travel backwards and forwards! Good guys and bad guys, but which is which, we keep guessing? A smart, likeable protagonist, Carmela, who deftly leads us through this compelling story. An empathic, sweet Android psychologist. Wonderful technology and Artificial Intelligence that's pretty darn impressive and quite believable. Story flowed smoothly and kept me turning pages, wanting more, but not wanting it to end. Hope there's a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars Had me intrigued the whole time. 13 February 2015

Very well written. This was a page turner for sure. The use of switching back and forth between years had me trying to keep close track of things.
The last hundred pages saw the pace really ramped up and lots going on. There also is a lot of pertinent information thrown at us toward the end.

The author thoughtfully had the main characters deal with some moral issues based on the situation they found themselves in. One of the deaths was very sad to me. I hated to see that character killed. I don't want to give too much away so I'll keep it general.

I liked the main characters and especially the clan from on the hill. There are some interesting scenes in this story.

The time travel method is a real leap of faith for the time travelers because it so inconsistent and unreliable! Interesting!

I especially liked the descriptions and scenes in and around San Francisco. Having lived in Northern California, I could relate to the towns mentioned. David did a great job describing the surroundings of his characters. Also David introduced some fascinating futuristic modes of transportation and amusement type rides.

An excellent debut novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought this was a great book that had a lot of pros & cons ... 7 April 2015

I thought this was a great book that had a lot of pros & cons in the story telling. The characters were well described. The plot of the story was well thought out, and the book left the ending to where it can be continued.
