A mysterious woven metal artifact is found at a paleontological dig in Africa. Mystified experts, confounded by the impossible timeline they get from traditional dating methods, call upon a stubborn young man with a unique talent. Matthew Turner's gift is also his curse: When he touches any object, his awareness is flooded with the thoughts and feelings of those who touched it before him. It is a talent that many covet, some fear, and almost no one understands. Despite being exploited as a child and tormented by the unpleasant experiences imprinted on him from the various items he has "read", Matthew agrees to travel from New York to the forests of Kenya. There, threatened by unknown enemies and helped by a beautiful but prickly ally who begins to understand his strange ability, he journeys back in geological time to make a discovery so shocking that it forces us to rewrite all human history.

So I liked it, in a random sorta way...
- Jan "Tangential, eclectic, avid listener... favorite book is the one currently in ear."
Very enjoyable concept, couldn't put it down.
Yes, just a good fun read. It is nice to see someone with a 'super power' that has serious draw backs, where the small details and details are considered.
Matt was the most developed, I look forward to hearing the others if the sequel comes to Audible!
I pretty much did. Until it reached 5am and I just had to go to sleep. Finished it today though!
Highly recommended, I hope more of Michael's books come to Audible so I can listen to them all. I am interested to see if the characters in both his different series 'feel the same' or if they really do feel separate.
