What does Isaac Newton have to do with a group of animal activists terrorizing present-day Cambridge? And how could a series of crimes committed in the seventeenth century have anything to do with the murder of a contemporary professor? Could a moment in the past be so entwined with a moment in the present that events seem to be reapeating themselves some three hundred years later? Ghostwalk by Rebecca Stott is an intriguing, thought-provoking mystery that borrows its’ premise from the quantum theory of entanglement. Stott applies this theory to time, imagining what might happen if two moments of time somehow got entangled. This book has quite a bit of actual history on the seventeenth century in it, so if you are a fan of the time, you will definitely enjoy this book on another level. Even without a love of history, though, the book on it’s own is quite gripping and told in fascinating detail.
