Until that day, he runs a tight operation with terrorist-cell security.Tate MacLane is brilliant, miserable, and broke. Since graduating from high school at age 14, he's failed at university, failed to support his family, failed at everything except making a superb caffe latte. Randle wants a fresh face to front his transactions. Tate desperately needs a mentor and yearns for respect. And money ...Then there are the bikers, the muscle with the cross-border connections that Randle needs to bring his product to the American market. Soon Tate finds out that it's harder to get out of the business than to get in.

Retired First Nations Temporal Agent Wilda just wants to run her Toronto shop, garb Time Tourists, and send them on their merry way into the past. She finds contentment in her cat, her sarcasm, and her whiskey. All that changes when a deathly ill Traveller literally falls onto her doorstep, setting off a chain of events which forces her to return to the job shed retired from decades before. The Agency sends her and her assistant, Mattea, back into three dangerous eras of history to find the disease vector threatening the life of every modern Traveller. She searches through a teeming desert bazaar amongst the luxury of the court of Mansa Musa. She explores the dark forests of pre-Columbian America, fighting against the heartbreak of true love. She gets entangled in the convoluted politics of 12th century Norse-ruled Orkney, sifting through the horrific carnage of a murdered village. If Wilda cant return in time with the right pathogen, the modern scientists cant synthesize a cure for the disease before all the Travellers fall ill. She has to navigate politics, bandits, camels, and midnight coup d'etats, complete her mission, and return to the present, or lose herself in the depths of her own purposely-forgotten past.
