About the Book:

You can’t outrun your past. But what if you could change it?

College student Jordan Jones’s life hasn’t been the same since his grandmother, the person who had loved and understood him most, died in a nationally-televised massacre on the show Talent Now!

When Jordan discovers his grandparents’ television allows him to travel to the past, opportunity trumps fear: a chance not only to save his grandmother from an untimely death, but to exact revenge against the man who caused it.But as Jordan investigates the massacre—and the perpetrator—that claimed his grandmother’s life, he discovers an awful truth: just because the past allows him entry doesn’t mean it will allow him to leave.

Reviews:

“The character texture is rich in Ruszin’s novel… The pages turn briskly here, and readers will keep churning through the quick, crisp chapters.”—Sidney Williams, Wicked Horror

“The characters are complex and nuanced. Ruszin’s writing made me feel like I knew them. Poignant central message about the futility of trying to change the past and the importance of instead channeling that energy into improving your future.”—Tyler Doupe, Wicked Horror
