The book has a slow start but it's perfectly pitched to make sure you are well and truly hooked when it gallops into an intriguing spy story set during and after WW2. We really enjoyed the blending of real and fictional characters to create an exciting and captivating story with a very different central character, a female sniper with Hollywood looks. If you haven't read any Michael White then this is an excellent place to start as he has five other books waiting for you...
I am really not qualified to judge this book for I am not scientifically minded but if I can be fascinated with the whole concept then those who understand and appreciate it should be riveted. It is the real science behind Dr Who and then some. There are â€˜factsâ€™ on Atlantis, an explanation of Heisenbergâ€™s Uncertainty Principle and other extraordinary topics from aliens and Von Danikenâ€™s theories to telepathy, cybernetics and, of course, time travel. The author did the same sort of thing for the X-Files which is well worth looking at too.
