At the moment of his execution for murder, unlucky ex-pro football player Curtis Beckett is given the biggest break of his snake-bitten life. The electric chair malfunctions, sending him hurtling across past universes only to reappear in Lincoln, Nebraska, fifty years before the murder of his wife and daughter. In 1957, Curtis discovers he has his freedom, no past to haunt him, and an opportunity for redemption and true love when he meets young, beautiful Lisa Fielding. But Curtis’s past catches up to him when his obsessed ex-lover accidentally follows him through time and begins stalking him, determined to ruin his chances for love with Lisa. Those he left in the future have their own reasons for wanting Curtis dead, and they’ll use every means at their disposal to return him to the future—or kill him in the process. Curtis finds himself in a race against time to change the future, stop the murders, and find true happiness with Lisa.
Praise for Karl Alexander
Time After Time: “Alexander has produced a nifty, fresh and clever combination of romance, humor, suspence and a touch of sicience-fiction.”—Jerry Rankin, Santa Barbara News-Press
Papa and Fidel: “…Politics is strictly a backdrop in this fast-paced, fascinating story of men under presssure… As Papa might have said, it’s a damned good book.” —Publishers Weekly
Jaclyn the Ripper: “Alexander’s novel is everything you’d expect in a sequel to Time After Time. The sweep of history through time travel is dazzling, the characters are beautifully rendered, and the story has twists and turns that only Karl Alexander can muster.” —T. Jefferson Parker, author of The Renegades and L.A. Outlaws
