Ciaran Richards’ father was a soldier. A hero.
But now he’s dead. Or is he?
Dr. Donald Ellis lost everything on 9/11. He lost his wife and daughter in the south tower of the World Trade Center. But while others grieved, or plotted revenge, Dr. Ellis threw himself into a long-dormant research project. He traded his lab at the University of New York for an ugly riverfront warehouse in Brooklyn. What is he working on? And why does he spend every free moment at the warehouse standing by the river, staring across the water at Ground Zero? Because Dr. Ellis has a plan: he's going to make 9/11 "unhappen."
There are many reasons to change the past and Greg Enslen takes this premise and adds a chilling touch of reality in The 9/11 Machine. Tense, heartfelt and above all intelligent, Enslen ably manages to avoid the trite scientific story flaws that mar other time themed novels to deliver an uncommonly affecting and thought-provoking sci-fi thriller with a powerful over-arching conflict. In the main he achieves this by keeping the reader off-guard with nonlinear plot threads that comfortably sidestep the curse of predictability, but readers familiar with Enslen’s work will know he also excels at character development and it’s certainly no different here. With his customary acerbic pen, he takes us into the mind of protagonist Dr. Donald Ellis and his compelling backstory, revealing his inner most thoughts, angst and aspirations as he seeks to change time and reunite with his fated wife and daughter. The pace is quick to build and readers are guaranteed a cracking denouement!
Another superb offering from Enslen, The 9/11 Machine proves an extraodinary read. A must add to your reading list, it is recoomended without hesitation!
