At first, it looks like a disease. An epidemic that spreads through no known means, driving its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived. But the force that’s sweeping the world is no pathogen. It’s just the first shock wave, unleashed by a stunning discovery - and what’s in jeopardy is not our minds but the very fabric of time itself. In New York City, Detective Barry Sutton is closing in on the truth - and in a remote laboratory, neuroscientist Helena Smith is unaware that she alone holds the key to this mystery...and the tools for fighting back.

was interesting idea but didn't quite work out
the story had some promise, but just simply not make sense. Story contradictory to itself, as if the writer started writing without have the core concept figure out.
it also gleaming with errors, writer lack of basic knowledge of how physics works and throwing random terms together to form sentence that have no meaning. it may sounded cool in his head but in reality it just kick you right out of the story and make this book hard to enjoy.
the performance are excellent.

A fabulous and terrifying read

I don't think I get this...
The narration is flat, maybe it is designed, but it does not help. I was waiting for the arc, for the story to pick up, then suddenly it ended. without development of character nor advancing the story, the book ends exactly where it starts. if this is a setup of multi book series, it is failing.
overall an uninspiring pictures of future or past, or a mixed of both. I'm having a hard time to grasp the point of this writing.
