Publisher's Summary

'I love you. In every world.'

Young real estate agent Madison May is shocked when a client at an open house says these words to her. The man, a stranger, seems to know far too much about her and professes his love - shortly before he murders her.

Felicity Staples hates reporting on murders. As a journalist for a mid-size New York City paper, she knows she must take on the assignment to research Madison May's shocking murder, but the crime seems random and the suspect is in the wind. That is, until Felicity spots the killer on the subway, right before he vanishes. 

Soon, Felicity senses her entire universe has shifted. No one remembers Madison May, or Felicity's encounter with the mysterious man. And her cat is missing. Felicity soon realises that in pursuit of Madison's killer, she followed him into a different dimension - one where everything about her existence is slightly altered. At first, she is determined to return to the reality she knows, but when Madison May - in this world, a struggling actress, is murdered again, Felicity decides she must find the killer - and learns that she is not the only one hunting him.

Travelling through different realities, Felicity uncovers the opportunity - and danger - of living more than one life.

Great author must find more Max Barry

Love the idea of moving between lives. Cleverly written and such interesting characters I got slightly confused but soon caught up. I want to see this as a movie. Narration terrific. Clear and not too American twangy

Engaging narrative

Excellent performance. Enjoyable and interesting concept. Good narrative pacing. Worth the effort and the cost.

Good!

Definitely an enjoyable read. The villains motives seemed a little shallow. Serial killers usually have an interesting backstory and Barry could have given us more there to flesh out the character, but otherwise a solid book and enjoyable read. Narration was good as well.

Who do you want to be?

Strong and well directed performance, character differentiation was good and the voice acting talented. Story adds a few new takes on the parallel worlds trope, using characters to care about.

Not as good as I was expecting

Interesting concept; moving between lives. Became confusing. I liked the characters and how they developed. Narration was not good for me. Very nasal American. Wouldn't rave about it.
