Stassi's next assignment takes her to Paris in the 1920s in search of a lost manuscript by one of the 20th century's greatest writers. She and her partner, Gaige, are swept up in the City of Light during the height of fashion and culture - as alluring a locale as they've ever visited. But a seedier side of life lurks beneath the glamorous facade, and the pair quickly learns this run is more dangerous than any of their previous missions.
Because history isn't playing out as it should be - a first for the syndicate. When the stakes are raised and it becomes a matter of life or death, Stassi and Gaige must ultimately decide how far they're willing to go to ensure the future as they know it.

Great story, bad editing.
This an amazing story. long but good. The writter is excellent at describing places, things, places, clothing and of course Paris. At some points she can actually get a little too winded. It could of been shaved off a bit.
The story line was very good. It something I've never heard before. It definitely keeps you interested. With lots of twists and turns. I actually jumped online to grab the second book and noticed it has not yet been released.
You can read this book all the way through. it doesn't have any cliffhangers or anything like that, but man I couldn't wait to hear the second book.
I do however wish that the narrator works on her Reading a bit and doing other voices better. The two main characters voices are great but some of the other ones need some work. Also there's a lot of volume going up and down and a bit of repeating.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Good story, worst narration ever!
The book itself is pretty good - the time travel element isn't really the key to the plot - it's more of a mystery/period piece/thriller - but I can see how the time travel element will work well with the longer story arc of the series.
The problem is a narrator with robotic intonation, putting emphasis on all the wrong words, reading deadpan and mispronouncing many words - not just the foreign language ones but also many English ones. Production quality is also low, with several examples of poor sound editing when the narrator stumbled and repeated phrases, plus pauses between chapters that varied between what one would normally expect in an audiobook and long enough to make me check my phone to make sure it hadn't stopped.
I have listened to thousands of audiobooks, and normally don't leave reviews, but this one was irritating enough to get me motivated. I really want to listen to the next book in this series....but only with a different narrator and a real production company!
