Overview

'HANG ON! Haven't I already done this?'

Everybody knows that time travel isn't possible.
But just imagine what you could do: win the lottery, save lives, walk amongst dinosaurs.
Tony Cole just wants to hold his crumbling family together.
Can he keep his father out of jail and save his parents' marriage? Can he deal with his brother's betrayal and prevent the death of an innocent woman?
Only if he learns how to turn back the clock.

Tony Cole is an ordinary guy doing the most boring job in the world. He doesn't need to work - his father makes enough money to allow the family to live in luxury.
But his father is a crook, and the money is obtained from false accounting. As the worldwide financial crisis hits, his clients want their money back, and he no longer has enough to pay them. Meanwhile, Ange, Tony's mother continues to spend in blissful ignorance.
Tony's brother, Cal, also lives the high-life, treating his own girlfriend with disdain while carrying on an affair with Tony's girl. Their sister, Debs, is a normal teenager, but a forced change of school finds her marginalised and unhappy until she falls in with the local gang.
It's by chance that Tony discovers the ability to time-travel, but there are limits. He can't travel forward, can only travel back to within the same day, and never to the same time (or earlier) more than once.
Faced with so many family problems, it might not be possible for Tony to solve them all. And the burning hatred he feels for his brother might put the life of an innocent woman in danger.
And what of Manuella, the family's mysterious Portuguese housekeeper, who seems to be everywhere? Can she help Tony to make the right decisions?

Meet the Author

Marshall Buckley lives near London, UK and in Newfoundland, Canada. At the same time. He has a total of 5 children, four dogs, three cats and six very small fish. He is not as tired as you might imagine because he achieves all this by being two people.
In March 2009 an innocent-looking Facebook post stated "I've an idea for a book, who wants to help me write it?" and, after a flurry of posts and emails, Marshall Buckley was born; very soon after, the result (which bears only a passing resemblance to that original idea) was The Long Second.
With no publishing experience to speak of (one half of Marshall Buckley is a Sales Executive while the other is an IT Professional), The Long Second was sent out to the world in full confidence of securing an agent and a publisher in a matter of days. By some good fortune, the first was actually achieved, but the second remained elusive.
Marshall Buckley now has a full two years' worth of publishing experience but is no closer to understanding the mysteries of the industry.

    to long to get to the main story

    I did not finish this book. Lost interest about half way through. Maybe if it was shorter and more to the point.
