Summary
"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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Sweterlitsch follows his futuristic, cyberpunk thriller Tomorrow and Tomorrow (2015) with a complex mystery involving time travel, alternate possibilities, murder, terrorism, and one woman's determination to prevent the end of time. Shannon Moss has traveled through time and seen Terminus, a devastating temporal incident moving closer and closer to the present day. Although the event left her with a bum leg, she is still a very capable special agent for the Naval Criminal Investigation Services (NCIS) an agency that is much more than it seems. On the surface, NCIS is the U.S. Navy's law-enforcement bureau, although, covertly, it sends personnel into time and space and has been studying the world-ending time anomaly. In her primary time of 1997, Shannon is assigned to a murder-kidnapping case involving a Navy SEAL who slaughtered his family. The only survivor, his daughter, is missing. Shannon will travel 19 years ahead, hunting for clues left behind, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the girl and return to 1997 before it is too late. For hard-core science-fiction fans.--Lockley, Lucy Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This chronological pretzel of a science fiction thriller embeds a murder investigation into an alien mystery that could end humankind. In 1997, NCIS Special Agent Shannon Moss is on the trail of a missing Navy SEAL who may have murdered his family. She ends up tracking him through her own past and into the near future, thanks to a secret military project that travels through time and space. Unfortunately, the futures to which she travels aren't guaranteed to come about, so they're inadmissible as evidence. Worse, she finds increasing signs that all possible futures are doomed by an alien intrusion called the White Hole. Bouncing back and forth in time, Shannon pieces together how the crew of a missing spaceship are linked to a terrorist conspiracy, and looks for ways to disrupt the chain of events that leads to the White Hole. Sweterlitsch (Tomorrow and Tomorrow) invests the reader in Shannon's struggles to save the world and rescue those trapped in the "thin space" where time loops endlessly. Unfortunately, the well-plotted resolution that unravels the knotty time puzzle also undoes everything that makes Shannon worth following through this complex story. Agent: David Gernert, Gernert Co.
