The breathtaking new thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of Wired.
What if you found a way to send something back in time? But not millions of years back, to the age of the dinosaur. Not even a minute back. What if you could send something back only a fraction of a second? Would this be of any use? You wouldn't have nearly enough time to right a wrong, change an event, or win a lottery.
Nathan Wexler is a brilliant physicist who thinks he's found a way to send matter a split second back into the past. But before he can even confirm his findings, he and his wife-to-be, Jenna Morrison, find themselves in a battle for their very lives. Because while time travel to an instant earlier seems useless, Jenna comes to learn that no capability in history has ever been more profound or far reaching. Now, as Jenna fights to defeat the powerful forces arrayed against her, nothing less than the fate of humanity hangs in the balance....
Containing a stunningly unique slant on time travel, Split Second is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller, one that will have listeners pondering the natures of time and reality long after the end.

I finally found my replacement for Crichton
Wait .45 of a second will you!??
Not in the top 1/4, but definitely in the top 1/2, and I listen to a lot of books!
Lee Radulin ( sp? ) was interesting in how manipulative and smart he really was. His nemesis, Evan Wright, was strong as well, but sort of went of the rails at the end.
Clearly voiced the characters respectfully, consistently and thoughtfully. A fine reading.
I certainly tried to. It's a relatively long book, but worth the time.
Get it. It is part of a new subset of time travel books that I am enjoying a great deal recently and does add to the genre. OK it get's somewhat "pie in the sky" at the end, but that does not take away too much from the overall offering.
