A murdered family. A missing girl. Time is running out.
1997. Shannon Moss of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is assigned to solve the murder of a Navy SEAL's family - and to locate the soldier's missing teenage daughter. When Moss discovers that the SEAL was an astronaut aboard the spaceship U.S.S. Libra - a ship assumed lost to the darkest currents of Deep Time - she comes to believe that the SEAL's experience with the future is somehow related to this violence.

Determined to find the missing girl and driven by a troubling connection to her own past, Moss must travel forward in time to seek evidence that will uncover the truth. To her horror, the future reveals that it's not only the fate of a family that hinges on her work; for what she witnesses is the Terminus: the terrifying and cataclysmic end of humanity itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Thrilling . . . [a] dark, page-turning SF thriller * Guardian *
Edge-of-your-seat crime fiction that bends both time and mind. Think True Detective meets 12 Monkeys. Throw in the end of the world and you can begin to imagine where this gut-twisting tale will take you -- Sylvain Neuvel, author of Sleeping Giants
Disturbing, compelling and a great read by a major new voice in thrillers * Crime Time *
Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a rich, absorbing, relentlessly inventive mindfuck ... a wild mashup of Raymond Chandler, Philip K. Dick and William S. Burroughs, and, like their work, utterly visionary -- Stewart O'Nan, author of The Odds
It's quite unusual for a first-time writer to have such a command of so many literary styles... It's fiction, of course, but just close enough to our reality to be disturbing * Pittsburgh Tribune *
Thomas Sweterlitsch is a superstar. Right out of the blocks, he's managed to achieve what most authors never do: the creation of a world so complete-so sensually rich and emotionally authentic-that it reduces the real world to a pale impression. -- Jesse Kellerman
