Achtung! This is a tremendous read. I normally shy away from anything SFF, but this story is credible. The setting during the holocaust makes it even more emotionally wrenching as I have family history in that time.
Skip has written an epic for the ages.

This is a truly great novel. A combination of quantum scifi and history. This has romance and adventure and edge of your seat action.

The plot of this historical-action-suspense-mystery thriller may confuse you, but it will never bore you! Oh, and did I forget to say, science-fiction time travel tale?

The main characters are Eugen and Willi Scheele (Willi is Eugen’s grand nephew) and they are both police detectives in their own times, which is quite fun to think about. The problem is that a time tr
