What if you could live in a perfect world?
Kane Christopher is no angel. When the robbery he’s involved in goes horribly wrong, he realises he’s made some really bad decisions. And it is then, wishing that his choices had been different, that he discovers that he can travel between universes. As he journeys he meets – and falls for - the same girl over and over again.
Soon Kane realises that someone or something is destroying worlds - stealing man’s free will by removing his capacity for choice.
Only Kane can see it. Only Kane can stop it.
But that might mean losing Pen forever.
And Kane is no angel.
