How far would you go to save the world?
When physicist Jacob Newman is pulled from his family, his job, and his whole life to investigate a strange vessel discovered at the bottom of the South Pacific, he finds evidence of time travel, along with implications that a judgment day against mankind is imminent. But it isn't until he cracks the time travel technology and uncovers a startling link to his own family history that he undertakes a dangerous mission back to 1924 to kill Adolf Hitler and undo a horrific episode of Earth's violent past. The results are catastrophic, and soon he discovers much darker forces working against him - forces he must overcome if he hopes to save humanity and see his family again.
Written in the vein of the late Michael Crichton, James Rollins, and similar authors who inject high concept plots with little-known historical facts and a touch of cutting-edge science, The Kronos Interference offers international intrigue, fast-paced action, and plenty of twists and turns. This new addition to the alternate history/technothriller genre received the coveted starred review from Kirkus Reviews, who called it "impressively original" and a "tour de force."

Yes, I would recommend this story to a friend. Particularly a friend who has a bit of a 'conspiracy theory’ fascination!
I liked how the story did not get bogged down in ‘time travel paradox’ stuff like some of the other books of this type. I also liked how this book dealt with the issue of what would happened if we did go back and remove the world of evil like Adolf Hitler. I also liked how the book involved more than just time travel. It had all the 'big time hits'… science, God, Aliens, Multi Dimensions, time travel, angels (good and bad), secret societies, Nazi’s. The only thing it lacked was zombie’s!
The narrator did an excellent job with a difficult situation. He had to perform multiple characters, of vary ages, ascents, and sexes. There are times when I wish these types of books had multiple narrators. But none the less it was good! A couple of times I could hear the narrator shuffle paper work and a couple of times it was clear the narration had been edited. But nothing too serious! Also the speed of the narration was acceptable. I generally listen to my books at 1.5x speed but this one was best suited to 1.25x
If I like the story and it is around 8 hours in length, then I do my best to put it aside till I can listen to it in one sitting. Sadly, I was not able to manage to do so this time. It wasn't from lack of trying!
I have now listened to quite a few books that dabble in the realm of time travel and this one has to be one of my favourites so far, probably because it doesn't get bogged down in the details of 'is it possible?' it just is an entertaining story with plenty of ideas to keep you wanting more! For me I found this one well worth the credit.

Yeah, thing like typos etc fade away and there is something about hearing the performance that adds an extra kick.
Have to say, hearing Morgan Freeman come out of now where was awesome! Kudos to the narrator on that one!
I really like the beginning when the ability to retrieve memories was made.
