Coincidence by David Ambrose


David Ambrose

This book starts off as one type of thriller, then changes to science fiction. It keeps you thinking with philosophical ponderings while the plot twists and turns.


Then I realised that the world outside was back to normal. Everything was moving again. I looked at my watch: it was a few minutes after three, but the information told me nothing. All I know was that I was George Daly, and something had just happened to me that no one would ever believe.
