WITHIN ONE MAN’S PAST LIES THE WHOLE WORLD’S FUTURE
Suspended for negotiating with an armed lunatic, rookie cop Marti Coldwater is feeling lost and unappreciated. But her day is about to get a whole lot worse when her car is run off the road by a strange, falling military craft and she rescues the lone passenger—a young British amnesiac who thinks it’s 1944.
Soon, she and her newfound companion are relentlessly pursued by government agents, a sinister Nordic assassin, and a race of Earth-dwelling extra-terrestrials.
When she uncovers a plot threatening the entire planet, her only hope of saving the world is to try to recover the memories of a man who may just want her dead—the man who calls himself Atticus.
