When Private Investigator Ben Chambers was hired to investigate a murder that took place several years earlier, he never anticipated that his inquiry would lead to the seemingly impossible: to penetrate the veil of time and see the murder happen right before his eyes.  Now that he knows who committed the crime, a larger question makes itself apparent: can he stop it from happening?  Can he save the life of a young man who didn’t deserve to die?  Or does the timestream prevent such things from ever happening?  The answer to those questions of the past will forever alter Ben Chambers’ future.

Ben Chambers is a private investigator at the end of his career, an arc best viewed through the bottom of a whiskey bottle.  He has investigated missing persons, adulterous lovers, embezzling partners…and none of it has ever meant anything.  None of it has ever changed anything.  So Ben looks at his life now and wonders, what was it all for, really?  He resignedly takes on one last case, investigating the unsolved murder of corporate CEO Jason Black’s son, an Iraq veteran killed shortly after an anti-war rally.  Ben expected that his investigation would take him into the past through photos and research and interviews.  What he never expected was that the trip into earlier years would be literal…as he time travels back to the night of the murder, and discovers that he finally has his chance to make a difference, courtesy of The Twilight Zone.

The deeper he goes, the more isolated he becomes, and the more dangerous his world becomes. How far will Joe go to find the truth? And will his partner Katie Black go with him…or turn against him?
