    I ll give this a 3.5 star rating, but Goodreads has yet to initiate this needed middle of the road option First and foremost, a large thank you to Reedsy Discovery and Lee Matthew Goldberg for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.Looking for a thriller with a different tilt, my eye caught this novel by Lee Matthew Goldberg In a tale that pulls two men from different er

    I received this from Netgalley.com A man wakes up in present day Alaskan wilderness with no idea who he is, nothing on him save an empty journal with the date 1898 and a mirror He sees another man hunting nearby, astounded that they look exactly alike An interesting time travel premise Some slow sections as the plot was built Liked it, didn t love it.2.25
