Publisher's Summary

The Future Has Already Happened.

It's expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen. A bus will take them to the mall. They will have an hour or so to look around. Perhaps buy something, try their food.

A minor traffic incident on the way back to the resort will provide additional interest - but the tour rep has no reason to expect any trouble. Until he notices that one of his party is missing. Most disturbingly, she is a woman who, according to the records, did not go missing.

Now she is a woman whose disappearance could change the world.

With breathtaking plot twists that ricochet through time, The Tourist is the most original conspiracy thriller you will listen to this year.

    "Intriguing addition to time travel genre"

    Lots of interesting ideas around time travel, introduced not by bald explanations but implied by the characters and story. Kept me hungry right to the last minute.
    The narrator did an excellent job of voicing the multiple characters (some speaking in first person).
    Overall very glad to have listened (guardian review) and eager for more from the author

    "Such a shame"
    What would have made The Tourist better?

    I'm sure the author is highly talented but not at this genre. It is a well written book and the small sub-plots are entertaining but the main plot is impossible to follow.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Dickinson’s story?

    The actual plot. The back and forth of time travel impose a real challenge for the author and the narrator. Neither succeed in making a complex story easy to follow.


    What didn’t you like about Peter Kenny’s performance?

    The characters were too close together. It was not easy to tell them apart.


    What character would you cut from The Tourist?

    None.
