Publisher's Summary

The breathtaking new thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of Wired.
What if you found a way to send something back in time? But not millions of years back, to the age of the dinosaur. Not even a minute back. What if you could send something back only a fraction of a second? Would this be of any use? You wouldn't have nearly enough time to right a wrong, change an event, or win a lottery.
Nathan Wexler is a brilliant physicist who thinks he's found a way to send matter a split second back into the past. But before he can even confirm his findings, he and his wife-to-be, Jenna Morrison, find themselves in a battle for their very lives. Because while time travel to an instant earlier seems useless, Jenna comes to learn that no capability in history has ever been more profound or far reaching. Now, as Jenna fights to defeat the powerful forces arrayed against her, nothing less than the fate of humanity hangs in the balance....
Containing a stunningly unique slant on time travel, Split Second is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller, one that will have listeners pondering the natures of time and reality long after the end.

nice story but shallow characters

I chose this as an audio book for my drive to work. For this, it is nice easy listening. The story was quite reasonable but the characters were awkwardly shallow. A good choice for adults with basic reading skills or adults who want a very simple book to occupy them while doing other activities.
