About the book

Time travel has arrived but so has a ruthless killer

Solomon Bonner was content as a CID Sergeant on the featureless streets of Gates Town, where local industry was in decline and those who could had packed up to somewhere more appealing. It was a passing through place, not somewhere you would expect people to choose to start a new life; especially not ones from another time.

But Sol’s no-nonsense approach to the job got him hand-picked for a promotion to DI of a specialist unit, tasked with tracking down the Downtimers. Unravelling the secrets of the time travellers takes a sinister turn when a chance discovery leads Sol on the trail of a killer who commands death from the palm of his hands.
