The past isn’t dead, it isn’t even past. Gary Indiana was ten years old when his father shared this Faulkner quote with him. Like most of the things his dad would say it didn’t make much sense at the time. Seven years later, though, it all makes much more sense than he is comfortable with. A mystery is unraveling that will lead Gary into the chase of a lifetime, across history and across state lines. Before dawn breaks in his sleepy town of Elysium, Iowa—history will be written and rewritten, lives will be lost and saved, promises will be kept and broken. And seventeen-year-old Gary Indiana, the self-proclaimed town outcast, is the only one who can do anything about it. In order to save his girlfriend, Sam, and the world as he knows it, he will race through history trying to make sure that everything happens the way it’s supposed to. He soon discovers, though, that it isn’t so much that he’s unraveling the mystery as much as the mystery is unraveling him. In the span of one, hot August night—a president will be shot, a heart will be broken and a hero will be hanged. But Gary only has two things on his mind—Save Sam, save the world. And in that order.
