In a bleak near-future, where a select few have been born with the ability to see events before they happen, Kaoru Jacobs has a simple job. He is an assassin. He kills, waits for his next assignment and then he kills again. On December 2, 2049, Kaoru receives his next target: Renata Cambridge, head of the Artemis militia group. A woman who has been dead for over twenty years. The assignment means the resurrection of a secret time travel project and a journey back to 2014. Failure will result in his being stranded in a time where he does not belong and a paradox that might just kill him.
