An Intense Time-Travel Adventure!
I enjoyed this novel so much that I've ordered a copy of The Breach, Patrick Lee's first novel set in the same world as Ghost Country. A high-tech sci-fi thriller, Ghost Country starts off with the motorcade of scientists from a secretive organization being mowed down on the order of the president and doesn't let up from there.
