Call Time




Back To The Future meets Call My Agent in this enthralling high-concept debut novel from Channel 4 F1 presenter Steve Jones.

Bob Bloomfield's whole life changed when his little brother Tom was tragically killed in an accident.

Now a ruthless corporate partner at Fitz-Simmons & Bloomfield Entertainment Management, with a "materially rich, spiritually empty" existence, Bob has done enough living for two.

But then the impossible happens.

A seemingly ordinary phone allows Bob to connect to the past ... and speak with his twelve-year-old self. And his calls back through time are creating real changes in the present.

Which leaves Bob with two questions:

Can he prevent his brother's death?

And will he like the world he's created if he does?
