Summary of the Book
Time travel was the one discovery people had been waiting for. However, despite being so simple, it was only natural that others would seek to use it for criminal means. Fortunately, those who dare mess with the Time Space continuum have someone to reckon with: the TimeRiders. Torn from their own timelines as they’re about to die, they have been granted a new life by a secret agency that doesn’t exist. Liam O’Connor, Maddy Carter and Sal Vikram are charged with policing those who would misuse the powers of time travel for their own ends. Theirs is a simple job. If someone dares mess with time, it is their responsibility to stop them from destroying the world and all the future.
