This story is set after Miracle Day and, according to the narrative follows on from the previous audiobook, Fallout. However, unlike Fallout, this story heavily features Captain Jack, although there is no Gwen except in reference to Jack's premonition of her dying.

As per the previous release, the story is read by Tom Price who, although he does his PC Andy voice and also does a passable impression of Rhys, thankfully, he doesn't try to impersonate Jack's voice. This can be a little confusing at first but I think that was the right decision. Shame John Barrowman couldn't have contributed though.

What I like about this story is that, with the Torchwood Hub having been previously destroyed, Jack has to rely on his wits to solve the case and, although luck plays a part, he copes very well in the circumstances.

This is a well written story that I enjoyed listening to. At an hour or so long, it felt a little like one of the earlier episodes of the TV series and, with a bit more action, could easily form part of a future series.

Ross Chapman is shot at point blank range, yet does not die. He gains super powers and becomes a crime busting vigilante 'Mr. Invincible'.

Cpt.Jack Harkness sees a vision of Gwen lying murdered, shot by an unknown gunman. Jack is angry - he does not know where the death of Gwen took place.

At the local police station Jack demands to see Sgt.Andy Davidson and hears of other incidents; young people becoming old, adults becoming young and others dying.

Jack must find the truth about Gwen in order to save her as time is shifting around the city. He must also find out who or what is causing time's erratic motion.

This is a very well written story with all the right ingredients expected in a Torhwood adventure. Events are a sequel to Miracle Day, with suspense, mystery and an unusual solution.

Written by Mark Morris and read by Tom price.

While I liked the premise of having a very ordinary person discover super powers while not managing to look impressive in the adopted lycra costume, the story is not particularly coherent, the characters aren't that likeable. Generally it's pretty childish for a Torchwood adventure.
There are multiple parts of the story running simultaneously, which end up somewhat incoherent, and there is the usual arbitrary means of making most things right in the end, if not everything. The problem is not just the incoherence, though, the character's aren't particularly likeable or dislikeable, so you end up not really caring what happens to them.
Disappointing.

Since the episode were Owen and Tosh were killed off Torchwood was not the same but after they killed off Ianto Jones Torchwood seems empty. The life of the series and stories is gone. The spirit of the first audiobooks does not carry through to this audiobook.
The story line is strained. How can there be a torchwood of just two people? Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper?
