A national security decision made decades ago ensnares Jonathan Hart, orphaned at birth, introverted, friendless, but whose life is starting to turn the corner. He has a great job and a fiancé who loves him. Suddenly, his life begins to skip backward and replay like an LP bumped on a turntable. Decisions made at the highest governmental levels more than twenty years ago begin to disrupt time and destroy his future. Finally, he is charged with a crime so awful that he contemplates suicide. What he does not know is that dying is not an option he controls.
