Image of Irreversible (SHOMI)

Maverick returns to her mind-bendingly complex world where time and reality can be altered or manipulated. Her clever villain from Wired gets his revenge and forces her protagonists to take desperate measures. With a heroine stuck in a Groundhog Day scenario, the incremental plot movement resides
in the attempts to break the cycle. Maverick's mind works in wonderfully twisted ways.

When Roxy Zaborovsky and her lover Mason escaped the time/reality manipulations of Leonardo Kaysar, they were forced to leave Roxy's best friend and roommate, Kitty Gibbs, behind. In fact, Kitty was shot dead by Leonardo in the one reality. Diabolical Leonardo has now trapped Kitty in an endless loop where she re-lives the same week over and over. Desperate to save her friend, Roxy hires time-anomaly specialist Q to find a way to free Kitty. It won't be easy, as Leonardo has employees watching for any suspicious behavior changes. What Q doesn't expect is to find himself falling for the damsel in temporal distress. (SHOMI, Oct., 368 pp., $6.99)
