Three Days to Never

Man, I wish Tim Powers wrote more books. I'm a total sucker for his "there is a secret mystical world hidden behind our history" gig. And even more impressive is that it's not the same secret-mystical-world in all his books -- he invents a new one for each book. In Three Days to Never it's that Einstein and Charlie Chaplin collaborated on (SPOILERS!) mystical time machine. Einstein's unknowing grandson and his daughter are caught up in a war between rival spy groups all seeking to control the device.
