Inception meets True Detective in this science fiction thriller of spellbinding tension and staggering scope that follows a special agent into a savage murder case with grave implications for the fate of mankind…
Shannon Moss is part of a clandestine division within the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. In western Pennsylvania, 1997, she is assigned to solve the murder of a Navy SEAL’s family—and to locate his vanished teenage daughter. Though she can’t share the information with conventional law enforcement, Moss discovers that the missing SEAL was an astronaut aboard the spaceship U.S.S. Libra—a ship assumed lost to the currents of Deep Time. Moss knows first-hand the mental trauma of time-travel and believes the SEAL’s experience with the future has triggered this violence.
Determined to find the missing girl and driven by a troubling connection from her own past, Moss travels ahead in time to explore possible versions of the future, seeking evidence to crack the present-day case. To her horror, the future reveals that it’s not only the fate of a family that hinges on her work, for what she witnesses rising over time’s horizon and hurtling toward the present is the Terminus: the terrifying and cataclysmic end of humanity itself.
Luminous and unsettling, The Gone World bristles with world-shattering ideas yet remains at its heart an intensely human story.
It’s a Sci-Fi story that has a mix of time travel and mystery, which makes it really enticing. The back of the book has some words from other authors that will convince you to start reading right away!
The dust jacket’s flap introduces us to Shannon Moss, a Special Agent assigned to solve the murder of a Navy SEAL’s family and to locate his vanished teenage daughter.
With her determination to solve the case, Shannon decided to travel ahead of time to explore possible versions of the future. It was an unpredictable story, and if you love time travel tales like me, you’ll probably love this one as well. It has just the right amount of action and suspense that will keep you glued on its pages.
The future reveals a horrific scene, which is the terrifying and cataclysmic end of humanity, the Terminus. The story is really mind-boggling. It’s a great book to read and discuss with others!
