"I promise you have never read a story like this."--Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter Inception meets True Detective in this science fiction thriller of spellbinding tension and staggering scope that follows a special agent into a savage murder case with grave implications for the fate of mankind... Shannon Moss is part of a clandestine division within the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. In western Pennsylvania, 1997, she is assigned to solve the murder of a Navy SEAL's family--and to locate his vanished teenage daughter. Though she can't share the information with conventional law enforcement, Moss discovers that the missing SEAL was an astronaut aboard the spaceship U.S.S. Libra--a ship assumed lost to the currents of Deep Time. Moss knows first-hand the mental trauma of time-travel and believes the SEAL's experience with the future has triggered this violence. Determined to find the missing girl and driven by a troubling connection from her own past, Moss travels ahead in time to explore possible versions of the future, seeking evidence to crack the present-day case. To her horror, the future reveals that it's not only the fate of a family that hinges on her work, for what she witnesses rising over time's horizon and hurtling toward the present is the Terminus: the terrifying and cataclysmic end of humanity itself. Luminous and unsettling, The Gone World bristles with world-shattering ideas yet remains at its heart an intensely human story.… (mais)

Solid genre-bender. The plot almost gets too twisted at times, but it works out in the end. Doesn’t get five stars because it’s unnecessarily Lovecraftian and at some points the writing fails to engage. But overall it’s great. ( )

Not bad but not my taste. Too confusing, time travel complications. ( )

There's a blurb on the cover that says "you have never read a story like this". It's true. I don't generally like books that use time travel- too easy to make shit up. But this book uses time travel effectively and honestly (even if it is made up shit). It's about pain, loss, valor, humanity in the darkest hours sort of thing, but without any stupid patriotism or gee whiz science flag waving. I found the voice convincing and appealing, and I found the book as a whole suspenseful while also emotionally satisfying. ( )

I kinda liked it, i think. The ideas were good, the world is refreshing and brutal, but the execution is sometimes a bit lacking. ( )

Deep Space. Deep time. In the future there isn't much in the universe outside of the reach of humanity.....even time. Shannon Moss is part of a secret branch of the NCIS that travels in time, investigating possible futures and the Terminus....an event in the future that might cause the end of humanity. They want to learn how to prevent Terminus, but they also discover that time travel has some very real physical and mental costs. In 1997, Moss joins a police investigation into the brutal murder of a mother and two of her children. Moss is familiar with the house -- years ago her best friend lived there. A Former NavySEAL who disappeared during a time travel mission years before is the main suspect in the grisly murders. The dead woman's 17 year old daughter is missing. As she travels in time to find facts about the murders, the missing girl and the crazed suspect, Moss also discovers horrifying facts about Terminus.

Wow! This book is an awesome mix of Sci-fi and suspense thriller! The story sucked me in right away and I couldn't stop reading! The plot has intricate layers....flipping back and forth in time....but Sweterlitsch's powerful writing keeps the story under control, making it thrilling and not confusing. Moss is an excellent main character....gritty, intelligent and determined.

I definitely recommend this book for lovers of Sci-Fi, suspense and thriller novels. It's an exciting read. The story just grabs ahold and doesn't let go until the very last page.

Excellent read! This book will release in February 2018.
