What would you do if you woke up tomorrow and learned you could send something back in time? You couldn’t go years or months, just a fraction of a second. At least that’s what happened to Nathan Wexler, a physicist who believes he’s cracked the code on time travel; but before he can share his findings with the world he and his fiancée Jenna Morrison are thrown into a war for his discovery against the world’s best scientists, and their hand-picked teams of special agents.
We follow Jenna as she struggles to understand the implications of Nathan’s work, and the effect it could have on the world. She has to learn who she can trust when the world’s elite are after her, and how she can keep Nathan’s work safe?
With so many twists and turns, it’s hard to explain this book without giving away too much. I’d recommend this book for anyone who’s willing to think a little, this book won’t disappoint. It seemed a little daunting at first, with the author firing complex physics theories at the reader. But the author does a pretty good job at explaining the physics and making it mesh well with the overall story. I’m not saying I’d be able to hold an in depth conversation with a physicist after reading this, but I could read it without making my head hurt. For someone who only took a high school physics course, that feels like a win.
An action-packed thriller, with in-depth understandings of physics from former scientist Douglas E. Richards, it’s no wonder that Split Second landed itself on the NY Times Bestsellers List.
