The Tourist is a masterpiece of suspense and a gripping new spin on the time travel story. The future has already happened. It is expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen. A bus will take them to the mall and they will have an hour or so to look around, perhaps buy something, or try some food. A minor traffic incident on the way back to the resort will provide some additional interest, but the tour rep has no reason to expect any trouble-until he notices that one of his party is missing. Most disturbingly, she is a woman who, according to the records, did not go missing. Now she is a woman whose disappearance could change the world. With breathtaking plot twists that ricochet through time, this is the most original conspiracy thriller you will hear this year.

"This audiobook might be less confusing if it were called "Time Tourist," but that's the least of its problems. Narrator Peter Kenny's clipped British accent is pleasant, and he helps listeners keep the many characters straight. But the plot is a bloody mess. The crux of the story is that sometime later in this century we start getting visitors from the future--time tourists who get to spend an hour or so in the past, subject to many rules and regulations. That's fine, but then the story shifts to other characters on a seemingly different timeline, and it gets confusing. Kenny breathes life into the principals, giving them various nuances, but, ultimately, listeners will spend a lot of time scratching their heads. M.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
