One of many victims that a clandestine government agency known as S.E.A.D(Special Executions And Defense) is desperate to stop. A brilliant ex-policeman Alex Weyinmi(and a close friend to Inspector Joe), driven by vengeance, finds himself on the trail of the same enigmatic killer. A killer who can manipulate time and space. With help from a brilliant SEAD physicist, doctor Keziah, and the precognitive doctor Faith, Alex will come to realize the true meaning of evil and reality. The book also highlights issues of: police corruption, the place of choice in human existence, and the spiritual.
