Professor Andy Spencer has just received a book deal from a reputable publisher. But he has grave problems. He is stuck while the publisher puts pressure on him. He can't find the information he needs to justify the theory that the Nazis' invasion of Russia wasn't Hitler's idea. While he works on finding the information he needs to justify such a thesis, something strange begins to happen. He starts having vivid dreams of being in Nazi Germany, dreams where he gets hurt and is shot at. But then when an elderly lady who survived the Holocaust shows his psychotherapist, Nate, a picture taken during the Nazi era that looks so much like Andy, she knows there is more to Andy than an obsessive writer with a book. Who is he, really? The answers are surprising.

Yesterday's Tomorrow is the first entry in the Just a Dream series, and while the book is listed as sci-fi, it has strong hints of the paranormal and time travel. Guy Rosmarin is a great storyteller and Yesterday's Tomorrow is filled with many plot layers. The suspense is strong and, as I read on, I couldn't help wanting to know when Andy's dream would intersect with his real life. The narrative has strong psychological underpinnings, with a protagonist that is as mysterious as he is complex, but one that readers will definitely want to follow. I loved this story and the unique idea that a character could be unwittingly investigating himself. It is intelligently plotted and written to a satisfying denouement.
