WITHIN ONE MAN’S PAST LIES THE WHOLE WORLD’S FUTURE
As a rookie cop, Marti Coldwater prepared herself to be ready for anything, even in a town as small as Ferry Township, PA. But nothing could have predicted that her police vehicle would be run off the road by a strange, falling military craft. Nor that she’d end up rescuing the lone passenger, a young British amnesiac whose only memories are from World War II, some 70 years earlier. And she certainly didn’t expect to be relentlessly pursued by government agents, a sinister Nordic assassin, and an Earth-dwelling alien race with a planet-threatening agenda—all with plans to capture her newfound companion and terminate anyone he’s been in contact with. Soon she realizes that her only hope of saving herself—and humanity—is to try to recover the memories of a man she’s not even sure she trusts—the man who calls himself Atticus.
