Very clever mystery that takes place in both 1944 and 2008. Espionage, intrigue, physics, and Russian thugs all play a part in the "solution," if you can call it such. The elusive Mr. Abernathy is key to unraveling exactly what is, or what was, going on.

I read quickly the first time because I wanted to know what was going on and how everything would tie together.

A second read made me realize how amazing this book truly is and I can't wait for Mr. Delgrosso's next published works (because I know

Tony Delgrosso has created believable, likable yet mysterious characters and very interesting situations, both current and historical. He continually ramps up the suspense, making it difficult to put the book down. And the twist at the end is oh so satisfying.

Mr. Abernathy is a lovely story and very well written, and I can't wait for Mr. Delgrosso's next book.

Ingenious and haunting metaphysical/sci-fi concept. Didn't see the ending coming, couldn't put the book down. Characters not as fully fleshed out as one would hope, but the propulsion of the plot kept me reading anyway.

I don't write enough reviews on BookReads. Sometimes it's too easy to just click the stars and move on. But I'd been planning to plug this book on my own site, and figured it'd be worth adding my two cents here as well.

I was excited to see Delgrosso release this book after following it in episodic form on his website. After a topsy-turvy few months earlier this year, I finally had a chance to sit down and read it through over the course of a weekend this past summer.

Delgrosso takes some of the c

Hopefully I'll remember to come back and write a full review when I'm not sitting in my car at the college parking lot between classes. Meanwhile, I will simply say that the last thirty pages gave me goosebumps. This book was a blast to read, and I don't just say that because I adore the author. Pleeease go buy a copy or three!

This is an excellent book. An easy read, with many twists and turns. I found myself really feeling for the characters and caring about how they end up. This book has everything: mystery, romance, science, and Nazis. Loved the ending.

I highly recommend this book.

An intriguing read blending sci-fi and a bit of alternate history. I liked the storyline, even if it was a bit predictable, and I liked the characters. I'm really glad I got to read it.
