These are the things of which Lydia is now certain:
The Montauk Project has been experimenting with time travel for years.
The Project's subjects are "recruits" from across time. Recruits like Wes: Lydia's ally, friend, and love.
The Project is now responsible for the disappearance of two members of her family. . . .
And they're coming for Lydia next.
It's Lydia's last chance to stop the Montauk Project . . . or else be lost in time forever. Lydia has been trained into a person she might have once feared: focused, fierce, deadly. Although she never wanted the life of a Montauk Project recruit, the Project has captured someone she loves—someone she'll do anything to save. Then Lydia glimpses a world in which the Montauk Project never existed. The Project has taken so much from Lydia already, but she knows that she will sacrifice everything to make her vision of a world without the Project a reality.
