Keith Darnell, the head of a military division at the Scholman Research Centre, is investigating a mysterious power loss that occurred a year ago. The blackout affected an area with a two hundred mile radius. Now there are signs that it might be happening again.
The events that follow lead Kate and Joe into the beginnings of a possible romance, but also into mystery and danger. Darnell realises they are at the centre of his investigation. And he is not the only one hunting Joe.
Everything changes for Kate on a night when the sky lights up like nothing ever seen before. And once Kate knows the truth about Joe, it opens up other possibilities. The thing she wants most in the world, the person she thought was irretrievably lost to her, might not be beyond her reach after all.
She asks Joe to unravel the events of the past. But how can he, when he knows the past can never be changed? The final resolution will depend on split second timing, when certain death is moments away and time is running out.
