The Gone World, Tom Smeterlitsch

  • Zwei Drittel weit im Buch, kann ich jetzt schon sagen, dass das definitiv eines meiner Jahreshighlights ist. The legitimate lovechild of True Detective and 12 Monkeys, thus creating something completely original, leaving in me in awe. Große Leseempfehlung, wenn man innovative, moderne Phantastik lesen möchte (derzeit leider nur im Original).

    Zum Inhalt:

    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.
