Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Time travel and secret agents, this is imaginative stuff. It’s of German origin so we have the German group vying with a Russian one. They are able to escape tricky situations by jumping through time before the problem erupts. The group advise Hitler, Frederick the Great, the Mongols and into future conflicts. Our hero, Otto, falls for a Russian girl from the Middle Ages and a German ‘giant’ from the near future! All great fun and even if the ‘get out of jail’ card is perhaps used a little too often, it’s good escapist stuff with a difference.

If you like David Wingrove you might also like to read books by Col Buchanan, Iain M. Banks and Peter Higgins.

But in a world where realities shift and memory is never constant, nothing is certain, least of all the chance of a future with his Russian love...
