John Hornor Jacobs: The Twelve Fingered Boy
Sci Fi fans, get ready for an action-packed adventure through time when Wesley Chu, award-winning author of The Lives of Tao, brings us Time Salvager. In a future when Earth is a toxic, abandoned world and humanity has spread into the outer solar system to survive, James Griffin-Mars, a convicted criminal recruited for his unique psychological makeup, undertakes the most dangerous job there is: missions into Earth's past to recover resources and treasure without altering the timeline. It’s all going along just fine - until James falls in love.
