But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
A sacrifice that altered the course of time
Arthur Penn was a sucker for a lost cause. He rescued an old man from an ambush and carried him to a hospital, but he didn’t expect a one-way trip. He didn't expect to find himself fighting off an amorous girl a century before the Pilgrims land. And he certainly didn’t expect to be drafted into a bloody war raging across a thousand human centuries.
Beautiful women. Brave men. Lonely machines. Terrifying aliens lost in a tunnel that connects every point in space and time. A ship that sails a universe so huge it can’t be described in human words. A lady who wants to be a mother. A true woman with a disturbing talent with an ax. All hang on courage of a hero who’d rather be in Chicago.
