Review

'This acclaimed debut starts with four women inventing time travel in the 1960s and quickly becomes a page-turning temporal safari. Part murder mystery, part extrapolation of a world in which time travel has become a commercial reality, it is written with an acute sense of psychological nuance' Guardian. 'Rather than empowering characters to change their past or future, time travel in the hands of Mascarenhas has the opposite effect - it can only help them understand how things have come to be' Straight Times, Singapore. '[A] unique twist on the typical murder mystery' Woman. '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. 'A hugely entertaining and satisfying read, wrapping your head around the science and psychology innovations is only half the job. The heart of the matter is how, and when, we let friendship and fate collide' Tuam Herald. 'A thought-provoking time travel murder-mystery that will have you guessing to the last' Candis. 'The most imaginative thriller I've read in ages: captivating, delightful, and thoroughly original ... An all-around wonderful novel' Jennie Melamed, author of Gather the Daughters. 'An astonishing debut, simultaneously a science fiction novel, historical drama, locked-room murder mystery and magnificent meditation on how human beings experience and adapt to mortality ... Breathtakingly tender and wryly understated, [it] feels like an antidote to a great deal of reported (and even fictionalized) history, its excised women now finding their way back into the spotlight' New York Times. 'This is a novel packed with ideas ... It'll leave you turning over the concepts in your mind long after the story is finished' SFX. 'A smart, twisty murder mystery ... Troubling and inspiring, comforting and horrifying, this is crammed with the kind of ideas that will ruin other time travel stories for you forever' SciFiNow. 'The narrative moves back and forth through time with its almost all-female cast meeting their future and past selves in an intriguing, multi-layered mystery that is ingeniously plotted' Daily Mail. 'Witty, inventive and unflashily wise about human hearts; Mascarenhas's future promises to be an exciting one' Guardian.
