So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave?
Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.
The one who's being pursued by...something.
So when the mysterious traveler finally reappears, Eli's determined that this time, he's going to get some answers. But his hunt soon yields far more than he bargained for, plunging him headlong into a dizzying world full of competing factions and figures straight out of legend.
To make sense of the mystery at its heart, he must embark on a breakneck chase across the country and through two centuries of history - with nothing less than America's past, present, and future at stake.

Well worth a listen, but one thing bothered me...
Not really a spoiler but I am going to mention some things from the book, so best say SPOILER ALERT just in case.
Cars run on water by separating it into hydrogen and oxygen with a catalyst, throwing away the oxygen and burning the hydrogen.
Perhaps a useful plot tool, but burning hydrogen combines it with oxygen to give you...water. So you would never run out of water as it comes out the exhaust, and you are also getting energy by magic. Water in, same water out..
That said, I happily accepted time travel and everything else with 'certainty', so best not to get hung up on it!

The American Dream
I love the idea of the American dream and that the founder fathers of America had a grand plan. This book gripped me from start to finish. Gutted to have finished the book but would love a Koturoverse universe book in the near future. Special mention for Ray Porter who narrated the book beautifully.

Standard Clines. Fun and forgettable
14 is Clines' high water mark (IMO) and this new work doesn't quite reach even the level of The Fold for pulling you in and keeping you engaged. I WANTED to connect with the characters but never quite got there.
Porter doesn't have the range of some narrators and offers no new voices here, but does an adequate job.
Still, its a fun little story and kept me entertained on a few long runs. I didn't like it as much as I wanted to when I picked it up but don't regret the credit.

I tried SO hard, I really did!
I normally LOVE Peter Clines. I have read and recommended many of his books, so when I heard there was a new one, I was thrilled.
Cut to my bewilderment as I listened to a book led by a completely uninteresting lead, full of useless characters, with a plot that, while imaginative simply turned out to be useless and dumb.
I'm sad. I adore Ray Porter's voice, and that is the only way I made it to the end of this very very pointless book.
My advice, save a credit and read one of his older works.
