Time Rep introduces us to Geoffrey Stamp —a slacker who lounges on his roommate Tim’s couch all day playing video games. He should be ecstatic and grateful when he receives an exciting job offer as a holiday rep for a tour company, arranging holidays for tourists from the future into the 21st century, but that is not the case for Geoffrey, who is irked. The thing is that only the most insignificant people are asked to become Time Reps since they are the only ones unimportant enough to not interfere with the continuum of time and space. When Geoffrey discovers a conspiracy that might alter destiny and disrupt the events of the future, he goes on an incredible adventure through time to make some disturbing and even important discoveries.

Peter Ward unfolds the plot brilliantly; strewn with original dialogue and mysteries, it makes for a great read.
