Publisher's Summary

Dick Young stays in his friend Professor Magnus Lane's house in Cornwall, on the understanding he will be a guinea-pig for a new drug that Magnus has developed. As a result of the experiment he is transported back to fourteenth century Cornwall.
With each 'trip' he becomes more and more involved with medieval intrigue, adultery and murder. Is it merely hallucination; a subconscious escape from his own complicated life, or a real journey into the past? He becomes obsessed with the world he visits, and past and present eventually become inextricably and perilously mixed.

Too much left out! I miss theUNABRIDGED Version!

I have gotten the unabridged version from my library (on tape) in the past, it was so much better. The abridged version leaves SOOOOOO much detail out that you miss much of the story and its hard to follow. You are better to hold off until Audible gets the unabridged version.

Kept me listening!

I loved this story when I first read it and was a bit disappointed with the adbridged version, since it really leaves out so much detail.

If this is your first time with this story then you should love it.

But, please, please get the Unabridged version!
