Comments

A piece of impossible technology has fallen into Travis Chase's hands: a device that opens a doorway to a point seventy years in the future. What Travis finds on the other side are the long-abandoned ruins of our world, devoid of any human presence. Now, with the only two people he trusts, he begins a search of the ruins, in the hope of discovering what will end our world—and how we might yet avoid it.

But the investigation touches a nerve almost at once, not in the future, but among powerful people in the present day. People who are hiding the very secret that will crash our civilization. For Travis and his friends, the race is on to solve a global-scale crime that hasn't even been committed yet. A murder mystery with the whole world as its victim. The action straddles the present day and the devastated future, ranging from the crumbling and forested remnants of Washington, D.C. and Manhattan, to the eerily well preserved sprawl of Yuma, Arizona, a bone-dry city where the last newspapers ever printed remain intact and legible among the ruins. And they're dated just a few months from now.
