Since detective Nick Lambert pushed his luck a little too far in the line of duty he has been moved to low-level assignments. But Nick has no idea that his first errand to check out an autistic girl who may be linked to a bizarre murder will pitch him into the most shocking and bewildering case of his career. Of any detective’s career.
At its core is a young woman who might just be the most important human being who ever lived – a woman who holds the key to shaping world events. Not just once, but over and over again. From the wastelands of 20th century Siberia to the dark ages of 12th century France, from present-day Los Angeles to a near future in which we see our worst fears realised.

Wonderful book that really works as an audiobook
Really there's nothing not to like about this audiobook. It's entertaining, excellent storyline(s), well rounded character development, funny, sad, intriguing, unpredictable. I laughed out loud...and had a few moments with 'the hanky' too.
I really can't think of another book to compare this one with, but I will be keeping my eye...and ears...out for other books by this author, especially if read by the same narrator.
Lewis Hancock is a new narrator to me...but he is excellent. He's up there with Toby Longworth for me...and he plainly enjoyed the experience.
I wanted the book to go on for ever...and I wanted to find out what happens too. Listening to it in all one sitting is probably impossible.
