"It is expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen. A bus will take them to the mall. They will have an hour or so to look around. Perhaps buy something, or try the food. A minor traffic incident on the way back to the resort will provide some additional interest--but the tour rep has no reason to expect any trouble. Until he notices that one of his party is missing. Most disturbingly, she is a woman who, according to the records, did not go missing. Now she is a woman whose disappearance could change the world."--From publisher.

In this intricately plotted novel, recreational time travel is a 24th-century growth industry and the most popular destinations are time periods before the Near Extinction Event (NEE) that changed the course of human history. Multiple narratives converge (and, at times, contradict one other) as Tri-Millenium guide Spens pursues a missing tourist through a 21st-century world of shopping malls and airports and a 25th-century prisoner carries out a covert mission that could alter several timelines. If you enjoy twisty time-travel thrillers such as Ellen Larson's In Retrospect or Sean Ferrell's Man in the Empty Suit, you'll want to read (and then maybe reread) The Tourist.
