In 2061 a young scientist invents a time machine to fix a tragedy in his past. But his good intentions turn catastrophic when an early test reveals something unexpected: the end of the world.
A desperate plan is formed: recruit three heroes, ordinary humans capable of extraordinary things, and change the future.
Safa Patel is an elite police officer, on duty when Downing Street comes under terrorist attack. As armed men storm through the breach, she dispatches them all.
'Mad' Harry Madden is a legend of the Second World War. Not only did he complete an impossible mission - to plant charges on a heavily defended submarine base - but he also escaped with his life.
Ben Ryder is just an insurance investigator. But as a young man, he witnessed a gang assaulting a woman and her child. He went to their rescue and killed all five.
Can these three heroes, extracted from their timelines at the point of death, save the world?

This book was excellent and riveting from start to finish. The introduction into the 3 main characters was 3 great stories in themselves. The characters work well together and the plot is well structured with lots of suspense.
I can't wait for book 2 to come out and hope the audiobook is released in 6th June which is when the paperback of book 2 "Executed" is released.
Couldn't put this one down. So well read and easy to listen to. Plot plausible for sci fi and lots of action. The personal tales of the characters were carefully plotted and believable. A definite 5star product.
If your looking for a book full of technical time travel jargon then you'll be disappointed. I was at first but the wonderfully breathtaking scenes imagined and described by Haywood soon had me hooked. Add to that the relationships grown and shared between three kindred
Brilliantly written with excellent character insight and dialog, excellently narrated and very interesting story. Don't expect any kind of conclusion- this truly is part one and this book doesn't get us very far into the story.
Now I need part 2, dammit!
Not a fan of time travel type stories but this hooked me from the beginning. It was the performance by the narrator Carl Prekopp that banished my skepticism. I enjoyed it and will be getting the next one. Really good start to the story.
"AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING"
This is a great story with amazing characters. Yes it is descriptive (gory, a bit vulgar etc). But it is done in a way that seems natural for the characters not forced or contrived. I can't wait till the 2nd book comes out. This book is just brilliant!
Best 3 bucks I've ever spent. This thing is amazing and can't wait for the next two. Good job RR Haywood, whoever you are! :-)
"Another great book!"
Another great book by RR Haywood! I want MORE! Love the characters almost as much as Howie and the gang. And the storyline was fabulous! Great narration too. Keep em coming!
"Rough Start But Great Ending"
It was a rough start but it all comes together in the end. We are talking about time travel and it was a bit all over the place but the author tied all together in the end with a nice red bow. can't wait for the next book.
