Chapter One




     Justin Archer could always shut off his alarm and go back to sleep, but it wouldn’t stop the cruel onrush of time.

     Or could it?

     He reached out of bed, grabbed his clock radio, and ripped the cord out of the wall. The strident buzzing stopped, immediately plunging the room into silence, only to reveal further auditory dimensions to the dawn.

     The sounds impinged on his consciousness like multiple stab wounds. An early commuter gunned down the otherwise empty urban street. A summer storm poured down upon the gently sloping roof of his family’s home. And his parents’ bed thumped rhythmically against the wall.

     He would have preferred the alarm.
