Publisher's Summary

A secluded Pacific Northwest cottage becomes a door to the past for Tom Winter, who travels back to the New York City of 1962, followed by a human killing machine that he alone must stop.


What the Critics Say

"Returning to his hometown after a failed marriage, recovering alcoholic Tom Winter purchases a house only to discover that it connects with another time and place - and his desire to 'start over' suddenly becomes a literal possibility. Wilson excels at psychological suspense, as the spiritual and emotional challenges his characters face are as intense as the physical dangers. A solid addition to any sf collection."

Most Helpful

absorbing, excellent narration

I really enjoyed this outing from 1991, and appreciate the effort the creators took to bringing it to audiobook format. The future predictions from the actual date of the book - 1991 - are amazingly spot on, and as with other RCW books, a lot of time is (well) spent on character development. The different times and places - at least those which we've already lived through - feel quite real.

I think pitch shifting technology may have been used - to subtle, good effect, to enhance the male narrator's rendition of the female voices. Also, the accent for one of the male characters, who hails from a small town in Washington State, is so spot on it's scary.

For those who enjoy time travel themed sci-fi, you're in for a treat.

Good Character Study

As with his book SPIN, this is not so much a SciFi than a good study of human nature. The SciFi element are just intended to let the reader observe consequences of various cultural perspectives.
