Review by: James Jenkins on May 11, 2016 :
If computers lost all the data during the fall back time of daylight savings, there would be a lot more people making withdrawals at ATM machines at the end of DST. Heck if you planned it right you could even hit more than one time zone change, possibly several, you do have 24 hours to bounce around the world.

Flawed premise, story never got better, I read 25% before giving up on it.

Review by: Tabitha Ormiston-Smith on Dec. 24, 2015 :
Although the premise was interesting, I found the fundamental premise of this book naive - computer log files don't overwrite themselves just because the TOD value is altered. DST cutover does not result in data loss in any functional system. Further, for the clocks to be set back, to overwrite earlier logs and transaction data, they would have to have been going OFF DST, not onto it.

The other problem I found with the book was that the characters were insufficiently developed, which detracted from the reading experience. So much more could have been made of what was a basically good plot idea.
