When is a gift a curse? I know.
My name is Nicholas Blackley. I can see through time.
Brief glimpses of the future and past where some peak of emotional energy creates a marker buoy in the grey ocean of time. I don’t choose what I see or when. It comes to me. But only at the place where it happened. And this gift has cursed my life because I cannot change anything. I only see what one day will have happened.
An evil man lures teenage girls into a well honed trap. Offering a job, a flat, a better life away from home brings them running. They never think about abduction, rape and murder.
One father refuses to give up. The police told him his daughter had run away. He didn’t believe them. He tried everything to find her but when he ran out of ideas he came looking for me, the Time Glimpser.
I didn’t want to get involved. I wanted to stay hidden. But a loving father levered me into the open and the frantic chase for a monster whose killing spree was far from over. Together we edged towards a confrontation that led the three of us to a final bloody climax.
