What if you could change the past? A divorced cop is haunted by the death of his daughter in a car accident eleven years ago. A man’s wife jumped from a building and he wasn’t there to talk her down. A scientist losing her mother to Alzheimer’s wishes she could go back and preserve those eroding memories - and she might have discovered a way to do it, if she could find funding for her research. Then she is approached by a wealthy businessman who wants to take control of her project, claiming it can not only record memories but actually give people a way to go back in time and change the past. But should they?
Recursion is a futuristic thriller that is more than just a wild ride with time-travel technology. As each revision of the past introduces more unintended consequences, the novel examines questions of how much you would risk to change past mistakes, and how much collateral damage is acceptable in the pursuit of new technology. Like the best speculative fiction, Recursion not only entertains but asks the question, What if…? - Michelle (Sunset)
