Publisher's Summary

The year is 2044. Housed in a secret complex beneath the eastern Arizona desert, a consortium of governments and corporations have undertaken a program on the scale of the Manhattan Project to bludgeon the laws of physics into submission and make time travel a reality.

Fraught with insecurities, Marshall Grissom has spent his whole life trying not to call attention to himself, so he can’t imagine he would be remotely suited for the role of time travel pioneer. He’s even less enthusiastic about this corporate time-travel adventure when he learns that nudity is a job requirement. The task would better match the talents of candidates like the smart and beautiful Sheila Schuler, or the bristle-tough and rattlesnake-mean Marta Hamilton. 

As the project evolves into a clash between science and corporate greed, conflicts escalate. Those contributing the funding are mostly interested in manipulating time travel for profit, and will stop at nothing, including murder, to achieve their goals.

Wonderful narration, terrible story

The schlocky sci-fi and terrible teen-aged boy level sexuality of this book couldn't be saved by the wonderful narration.

I couldn't even get to the point in the story where it looks like the chapter files are out of order because I couldn't stand to listen to more than a few hours of the painfully told story of nonsensical science fantasy and ridiculous Gary Stu character who is a big nerd and tall and lanky but has a huge... asset... that he's embarrassed about because he can't keep from staying constantly... on. It's all just eyerollingly terrible.

For full disclosure, I stopped listening at Chapter 16 and returned the title.
