The best-selling author of Time After Time returns to his time-travel roots in this suspenseful new novel.
Moments before his execution for murder, Curtis Beckett has a vision of a beautiful woman he would never meet. But instead of being killed when the executioner throws the switch on the electric chair, Curtis and the sister of the woman he is accused of murdering turn up missing. At the same moment, in the mysterious building 26, the state-of-the-art quantum computers that form the core of an experimental time-travel device are on overload. Curtis is thrust back in time to October 1957, fifty years before the murder takes place. He has his freedom, no past to haunt him, and the opportunity to make things right. He even finds a chance for true love when the woman of his vision comes into his life. But nowhere is safe for Curtis. The Warden, the Governor, and the scientists in building 26 want to see an execution—and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to bring Beckett back to the present.
