Read by James Langton
Set in Victorian London, with characters real and imagined, The Map of Time boasts a triple play of intertwined plots in which a skeptical H. G. Wells is called upon to investigate purported incidents of time travel and to save lives and literary classics, including Dracula and The Time Machine, from being wiped from existence. Butt what happens if we change history?
Felix J. Palma explores this question in The Map of Time, weaving a historical fantasy as imaginative as it is exciting a story full of love and adventure that transports listeners to a haunting setting in Victorian London for their own taste of time travel.
What the Critics Say:
“Palma makes his U.S. debut with the brilliant first in a trilogy, an intriguing thriller that explores the ramifications of time travel in three intersecting narratives.” (Publishers Weekly)
‘The Map Of Time is a clever and engrossing 500-page yarn encompassing mystery, romance and murder. Just the sort of novel to see you through a holiday’ Daily Mail
London, 1896. Andrew Harrington is young, wealthy and heartbroken. His lover Marie Kelly was murdered by Jack the Ripper and he longs to turn back the clock and save her.

As their quests converge, it becomes clear that time is the problem – to escape it, to change it, might offer them the hope they need…
