The Replacement Phenomenon

All Rights Reserved ©


Can Jake Hingham save his family and change his future when the Replacement Phenomenon throws him into the past, one day at a time? If someone had told Jake Hingham two weeks ago that time travel was real he would have laughed in their face. If they had then told him that he’d be pointing a gun at a policeman to save hundreds of lives, he would have had them committed. Yet, there he stands in a shoot-out, and with the pull of a trigger he can change his destiny after over a week of being hunted, strangled, shot at, imprisoned and probably even killed. It all sounds crazy to Jake, but his life was turned upside-down when he wished for the chance to save his dead family a week and a half in the future. You probably wouldn't believe his story. He wouldn't blame you. If he hadn’t lived through it then he would probably not believe it. That doesn’t change the fact that he's standing there with a fifty-fifty chance of surviving for another minute. One shot, one chance. It’s time for Jake's moment of truth.

A Note to the Reader

Firstly, I just wanted to thank you for choosing to read this.

Rather than wax lyrical, positive comments from those who enjoyed my stories mean more to me than I can adequately communicate. It’s thrilling to make the people in my head come alive, and validating when others like them as well.

This is a new version of my debut novel. I read it a while back and, whilst the bones of a good story were there, some parts were hidden amongst the unnecessary inclusion of OTT research, and others were drowned in cliché and immature writing.

This new version is an attempt to help the story stand out a little more. I feel my style has matured over the past decade since writing this first novel. The time was right to go back, relive it myself (which I enjoyed more than I thought I would), and put right a few things from this story’s past that were not quite right (much like the Protagonist himself).

I hope you enjoy reading this updated version.

As always, I would love to hear your comments.
