Society is crumbling before Jake McCluskie's eyes. A desperate tension fills the streets as frightened people attempt to flee. The clock is ticking down to zero, but Jake has already lost all hope. As an extinction-class meteorite rockets toward Earth, Jake knows the end is near. But he is going nowhere-or so he thinks.
Jake, a one-time promising author and now full-time bus driver, is still grieving and angry after the murder of his wife three years ago. Although he has chosen to live out his last days at home with his cat, Jake soon learns destiny has other plans for him. He has been chosen to fix time-and it is no easy repair. With crazed killers lurking everywhere, Jake embarks on a heart-pounding race through the empty streets of Queens, New York, in search of the Timekeeper-the only one who can send him back to September of 1938, when a college student important to the flow of time was brutally murdered during a violent hurricane. Now only time will tell if Jake can survive long enough to get there.
In this science fiction thriller, it is up to one man to find the Timekeeper and set things right before mankind disappears forever.
