Publisher Comments:

Michael Crichton's new novel opens on the threshold of the twenty-first century. It is a world of exploding advances on the frontiers of technology. Information moves instantly between two points, without wires or networks. Computers are built from single molecules. Any moment of the past can be actualized — and a group of historians can enter, literally, life in fourteenth-century feudal France. Imagine the risks of such a journey. 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.

Review:

"It's the geeky stuff...that makes Crichton's books so hugely entertaining, lending thrilling documentary realness to the proceedings." Daniel Mendelsohn, The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

Using a quantum time machine, a group of young historians is sent back to the year 1357 to rescue their trapped project leader.

Synopsis:

A Yale history professor travels back in time to 15th century France and gets stuck, unable to return to the present, so his colleagues organize a rescue and on landing in France become involved in the Hundred Years War.
