About this title

Synopsis:

Historical research has reached a new plateau: we can now observe human history as though it were occurring presently. With this new technology, a small team of scientists are assembled and isolated within the folds between timelines. Each member of the team has a specific role with distinct talents, and together they plan the greatest endeavor the human race has embarked upon. Their mission: observe and verify human history first hand. 
The team's investigation, however, yields radical and horrifying results, and they discover that they are not alone. Another time-traveler, one of ghostly presence and elegant brutality, is enacting its own code of justice on past atrocities. The haunting figure decimates a West African rebel camp in the 1990's. Emmett Till's murderers are crushed under the temporal interloper's heel in 1955. Leo Frank's assailants are incinerated in the early morning hours of his lynching in the Georgia woods of 1915. 
The timeline is a chaotic mess, and the team sets out to correct it in a desperate effort toward damage control. Their present and their future are at stake. While tracking the volatile time traveler, they quickly realize that they have gained its attention and soon a game of cat and mouse begins throughout history, leading them to the most horrible conclusion...

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
