Publisher's Summary

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake.
So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave?
Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.
The one who's being pursued by...something.
So when the mysterious traveler finally reappears, Eli's determined that this time, he's going to get some answers. But his hunt soon yields far more than he bargained for, plunging him headlong into a dizzying world full of competing factions and figures straight out of legend.
To make sense of the mystery at its heart, he must embark on a breakneck chase across the country and through two centuries of history - with nothing less than America's past, present, and future at stake.

Beware the faceless man...

Clines' is definitely not a one-hit wonder. I've read his past three novels and all of them manage to exceed my expectations. I haven't read the Ex-heroes series yet but if they're anything like his recent releases, they have to be good.

I love how imaginative his novels are. There are no cliche characters, no guessing the ending by chapter two - I literally have no idea what's going to happen next. And can't stop listening, which for me is unusual. A lot of times I end up zoning out or skipping through audiobooks, wishing it would just be over. I've never done that with this author/narrator pairing. It's like Ray Porter was born to read Clines' novels. I honestly hope he never uses anyone else.

If you're debating whether or not to pick this as your next listen, if you're even remotely into, as another reviewer calls it, "strange" sci-fi or alternate reality type stuff, I promise you it will be worth your time. Even if it's not your usual cup of tea, it's still a really great book.

Fun read

Great book. Made me laugh quite a few times.. If I had to compare it to something it would be like a crossover of National Treasure and the Matrix and it would air on the history Channel. Loved it!

The American Dream

I love the idea of the American dream and that the founder fathers of America had a grand plan. This book gripped me from start to finish. Gutted to have finished the book but would love a Koturoverse universe book in the near future. Special mention for Ray Porter who narrated the book beautifully.

Excellent as always from Mr. Clines

I've enjoyed all of his previous novels. This is a standalone adventure, fast paced, and thoroughly enjoyable. I liked the narrator as well.

Not 'FOLD' or '14' but still worth waiting for.

The imagination in the story was great. The light touch use of tech was good. Characters you cared about. The satire of the 'faceless men' was intriguing. As I said in the title, I enjoyed 14 and Fold more but still enjoyed Paradox. I have to admit that I was half expecting a seven limbed bug to appear at any moment😀. Looking forward to the next Clines ...

A fantastic tale with great narration!

Some of the most fun and truly entertaining reading I've had since discovering Audible... Also, Ray Porter? Tell me you can't hear him singing Cake's, "He's Going The Distane".
