NEW! Timeline

When graduate students reconstructing a medieval site in France discover a 600-year-old note signed by their missing professor, they are convinced their equipment is giving them faulty readings. But quantum physics and a shadowy technology company in the desert of the Southwest send the students, woefully unprepared, back to fourteenth-century France to rescue their professor. And the trouble begins...

Not since Jurassic Park has Michael Crichton given us such a magnificent adventure. Here, he combines a science of the future -- the emerging field of quantum technology -- with the complex realities of the medieval past. In a heart-stopping narrative, Timeline carries us into a realm of unexpected suspense and danger, overturning our most basic ideas of what is possible.
