A novel of ideas - comical, historical, frightening and unputdownable.
Michael Young is a brilliant young history student whose life is changed when he meets Leo Zuckerman, an ageing physicist with a theory that can change worlds.

But tinkering with timelines is more dangerous than they can imagine and nothing - past, present or future - will ever be the same again.
