chance to relive the past... It's something everybody
wants; an opportunity to correct the mistakes of youth.
Private Investigator Darren Camponi gets this irressistable
opportunity when he is hired to find his old high school
classmate, Jason Caufield. Caufield, awkward and unpopular
as a student, has gone on to research time travel and
has made a breakthrough. A breakthrough people are willing
to kill for.
What started out
as a simple search and locate for Camponi turns into a
deadly affair when the P.I. who contracted him for the
job turns up dead. Also, Capmoni discovers he is not the
only one searching for Caufield. The federal government
wants him too, and they threaten Camponi to back off.
When he doesn't, the people around him suffer. A suspicious
medical malpractice suit from the past resurfaces against
his father. A good friend loses her job for helping him.
His mother's car is run off the road. Only when Camponi
finally finds Caufield does he realize what is so important.
Caufield has a working prototype. He needs a volunteer.
With Camponi's present a mess of overdue bills and relationships
gone sour, Caufield has found the perfect guinea pig.
Pick a simple time,
Caufield instructs. Camponi thinks he does. What he doesn't
remember is the time he picks to go back to is only two
days before the death of his grandmother, an event he
has been suspicious of. Now, Camponi must risk his present
and future to prevent a murderer from the past from being
successful a second time. Can he change the past? Should
Deception lurks around
every corner. Betrayal exists in the hearts of the people
he's trusted most. Nothing is as it seems. Time Stand
Still combines the elements of mystery, suspense,
drama, and time travel science fiction. Darren Camponi
must unravel mysteries in both the present and the past
and confront corruption that knows no bounds. In the end,
he'll discover that his memories are not what he once
thought they were, and that darkness exists in places
he never dreamed.
Everyone has a past.
Most of us should never revisit it.
