It’s always risky, meeting a strange man for the first time. But not for Joanna O’Donnell. Not in the year 2022.

Her auto – a digital assistant – has scoured his history, his entire timeline. Working for a detective agency, Joanna knows how to unearth secrets.

Joanna’s auto calculates that her date is 85% compatible with her. At last, she’s found her match!

And then, moments before they meet, Joanna’s auto reports there is a 24% chance this man will kill her.

'Timeline' is a 10,000 word short story from the author of 'Fake Kate' and 'Bang: Memoirs of a Relationship Assassin'.

Reviews from Amazon:
This story offers an exciting and very fast-paced insight into the future, where everyone is on-line 24/7.

The narrative centres on Joanna's upcoming date with a man she hasn't met, but who scores highly on her 'compatibility index'. Even Joanna's 'auto' ( a type of avatar), appears half-besotted with her dates 'auto', until things begin to go awry.

Although this is a short story, it quickly absorbs you into the world of the 2020's, and will hold you to the end.

In many ways, this is a frightening view of the digital world of the near future, where David seems to be completely at home with the latest gadgetry of the time. David's offering is a masterclass in the art of writing a gripping piece of fiction. 5 stars.
I'm not really a science fiction fan so was surprised to find that Timeline is my favourite David Wailing title so far. This short story is amusing, eye-opening and fills you with adrenalin.

It starts as a romance and quickly becomes an exciting crime thriller. Wailing makes use of the same intrusive, futuristic technology introduced in his earlier short, Relationship Status, to tell the tale. Once again, this provides a witty commentary on modern technology, which I enjoyed as much as the storyline.

There are many little gems of brilliance hidden within the story. Look out for the part about private healthcare insurance and the sneaky reference to the 'porch' music introduced in Wailing's novel Fake Kate. I also enjoyed the (mis)use of statistics, which really appealed to me.

When reading from my Kindle, I tend to highlight any truly brilliant bits of text. By the time I finished this short, I'd highlighted half the book.
If you've read David Wailing's other short, Relationship Status, then you may already be familiar some of the sci-fi style concepts in this story. 

I don't want to spoil anything by giving any of the plot away, but safe to say, the writing is spot-on and the story fascinating and perhaps even scary to a point. Halfway through, I thought I'd guessed the ending, but was pleasantly surprised to find I had it all wrong.
