He’s been given the ultimate do-over. If he takes it, he’ll destroy everything.


Nicholas Smith thought he was done with time travel. Rocketed back to 2008 after a triumphant victory over a tyrannical government, the heroic engineering professor embarks on a second-chance mission to prevent the death of his beloved spouse. But his inner conflict spins into a roiling storm as he ponders the consequences of playing God… and how it could annihilate all he battled to save.


Already struggling with the possibilities of paradox, Nicholas doesn’t know which way to turn when an Army major argues that destiny demands he help her steal nuclear weapons. And as the intricate threads of the timeline knot into an impossible snarl, the heartsore man sees bloody disaster in any choice he makes.


Will Nicholas’s desire to protect everyone save or doom the world?
