About this ebook

Atticus Wolfe is a man out of time.

November 1963

As an MI6 spy in 1963, Atticus Wolfe should be enjoying everything the swinging sixties has to offer.

But he’s not.

That’s because Atticus Wolfe is from the 21st century.

Accidentally torn from present day and flung into 1960s London in the midst of a cultural revolution, Atticus must acclimatise to a time not his own.

Although he's shocked by bigotry decades out of step with his sensibilities, not everything is unfamiliar – like finding a mole inside MI6.

Atticus must take down a clandestine Soviet agent on the front lines of the Cold War, hunt the terrorist who inadvertently sent him back in time and maybe, just maybe, find a way home.

A fast-paced adventure with whip smart dialogue and twists you won’t see coming, Out of Time is like no spy story you’ve read before.

This is basically a Cold War era spy novel with a twist - the main protagonist is an MI6 operative from 2024 who has been thrown back in time. I really enjoyed the story, the characters are well-rounded, the pacing is fast, which is fitting for this story, and Sinclair does a good job of describing early 60s English culture. Most of the historical background is accurate, as far as I could tell - I only noticed one thing that was definitely wrong - Atticus is thrown back in time to late 1963 (JFK has just been assassinated) but he and one of the other characters have a brief discussion about the Beatles album Rubber Soul - which wasn't released until late 1965.

I don't usually give a full 5 stars but I really enjoyed this book. The story was surprising with all of it's twists and the characters were well developed. I appreciate that it was a clean spy novel. There aren't many of those out there. Great book!

Yes I love it! No unnecessary 'flashbacks' to derail the thrills and pace of a brilliantly written adventure..

About the author

Dave Sinclair is a USA Today bestselling author, screenwriter and a really excellent parallel parker. Author of the Atticus Wolfe, Charles Bishop, Eva Destruction novels and snarky Post-It notes.

The three series have different main characters, but do manage to slip into each other’s series now and then.

Dave spends a lot of time in his imaginary world and ignoring the washing.

He lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife and two crazy daughters.

He’s also an award winning filmmaker. A title that sounds much more impressive than it really is. He won a best comedy screenplay and cinematography award for one of the short films he wrote and directed, though at the time he didn’t really know what cinematography was. A completed screenplay is currently doing the rounds.

Dave’s overflowing bookshelves include many works by Douglas Adams, P.G. Wodehouse, Dashiel Hammet, Raymond Chandler, Janet Evanovich, Ian Flemming, Zadie Smith and John le Carré.
