WITHIN ONE MAN’S PAST LIES THE WHOLE WORLD’S FUTURE
Suspended for negotiating with an armed lunatic, rookie cop Marti Coldwater is feeling lost and unappreciated. But her day is about to get a whole lot worse when her car is run off the road by a strange, falling military craft and she rescues the lone passenger—a young British amnesiac who thinks it’s 1944.
Soon, she and her newfound companion are relentlessly pursued by murderous men in suits and a sinister Nordic assassin with a singular mission—capture the stranger and kill anyone who’s seen him.
When she uncovers a plot threatening the entire planet, Marti is thrown into a world of highly classified government programs and astonishing alien secrets. Now, her only hope of saving the world is to try to recover the memories of a man who may be the most dangerous of all—the man who calls himself Atticus.
In this riveting sci-fi thriller from J.B. Manas, co-author of The Kronos Interference, stakes and tension are high as a stranger arrives with no memory and a deadly secret that could wipe out the entire human race. The Kronos Interference earned a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, who named it to their Best of 2012, calling the book “impressively original” and a “tour de force.” Atticus follows Manas’s penchant for writing fast-paced fiction that blends history, science, and adventure into a fun, twisty thrill-ride—this time from the suburbs of Bucks County, Pennsylvania to the volcanic hills of Iceland.
