Lost in Time Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
"Amazing! One of the twistiest time-tales I've ever read..."—Diana Gabaldon
"Crichtonesque thrillers don't come much better than this intricate outing which combines a fantastic premise... with a closed-circle whodunit. Readers won't be able to turn the pages fast enough."—Publishers Weekly—Starred Review
From the worldwide bestselling author of The Extinction Trials, Departure, and The Atlantis Gene comes a new kind of sci-fi thriller: a time-travel murder mystery with a twist you'll never see coming.
Control the Past. Save the Future.
Dr. Sam Anderson is one of the most celebrated scientists in history. Ten years ago, he invented a device that changed the world forever. Now his life is about to be ripped apart—and his own creation may be to blame.
One fateful morning, Sam discovers that his girlfriend has been murdered and that his daughter is accused of the crime.
Sam believes she's innocent, but he can't prove it. There's only one thing he can do to save his daughter: confess to the crime. And so he does.
But in the future, murderers aren't sent to prison. They're sent to the past.
Thanks to Sam's invention–Absolom–the world's worst criminals are exiled forever, sent back to the time of the dinosaurs, where they live out their lives alone.
As Sam steps into the Absolom chamber to leave for the Late Triassic, he makes a promise: he will get back to his family, clear his name, and find the person who killed the woman he loved.
What Sam doesn't know is that there's a secret waiting for him in the past. And it might be his only hope of saving himself and his family.
Sam isn't the only one seeking justice. In the present, his daughter, Adeline, also embarks on a mission to find the person who framed her and tore her family apart. She's already lost her mother. She can't bear losing her father too.
As Adeline peels back the layers of the conspiracy against her family, she uncovers more questions than answers. Everyone around her is hiding a secret, including her legal guardian. And some people aren't what they seem.
Adeline soon finds herself in the midst of a mystery that stretches across the past, present, and future—and leads to a revelation that will change everything.
Lost in Time is more than a murder mystery about advanced technology and time travel. It's a heartwarming story about family and the lengths we might go to in order to save the ones we love—with a twist that will have you questioning everything you thought you knew since the first moment.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants open her mind to the very edges of her experience.
Quantum physics makes these time travel and multiverse stories so enjoyable because of the additional challenge of comprehending the timeline. The rule that the past cannot be changed and the idea of spawning alternate universes usually keeps it comprehensive. This story introduces the idea of transporting within the same universe, but not changing the past, because it already has happened and there’s evidence and the evidence will be found which means that not transporting back in time within the same universe must happen or the past will change, but it will happen for sure because the past proves it did happen. With that comprehension established, wonderment is created for what seeded the seemingly recursive sequence of events. The answer to that is existential, and the book doesn’t try to do anything overly creative to go deeper than that. It really wraps up nicely.
It's not Proust, or Cicero, and it's not meant to be.
It's keeping my mind off our world's problems by showing me sollutions in another version of ours.
And it may improve your mood.
Hope, no matter where it comes from, can be a truly helpful thing.
Riddle's books instill hope.

What follows is a mixture of time travel and whodunnit genres with some huge twists to throw the reader off track.
Yes, there were a few unlikely contrivances to move the plot along, but overall this was an excellent thriller that cements Mr Riddle as one of the foremost Sci-Fi authors around.
Loved it and will be looking at this authors other books, if they are anything like this one then they will be worth a read!
