Travel through time with the touch of a hand.

Roan West was born with an extraordinary gift: he can relive memories across centuries and glean history first-hand. A highly skilled psychometrist, Roan is able to perceive the past of any object he touches. He has spent his life as a voyeur, using his talents to find and sell valuable antiques, but his quiet life in New Orleans is about to change. Stuart, a fellow pyschometrist and Roan's close friend, has just unearthed several ooparts: out-of-place artifacts that challenge recorded history, including a ring belonging to the seventeenth-century mathematician and philosopher Rene Descartes that was found buried in prehistoric bedrock.

The implications are staggering, but soon after the discovery, Stuart disappears, making him one of several psychometrists who have died mysteriously in recent months or vanished without a trace. When Roan comes across a YouTube video of a young woman who has discovered a priceless pocket watch by sensing it, he knows he has to warn her-but will Melicent Tilpin listen? And can Roan find Stuart before it's too late?

The quest for answers will lead Roan and Melicent around the world, and to forgotten corners of history, before it brings them closer to a startling truth and to each other in the latest romantic thriller from Gwendolyn Womack-the bestselling, PRISM Award-winning author of The Memory Painter and The Fortune Teller.
