Best science fiction novel, Writer's Digest Self-Published e-Book Award 2019. Long-listed for the BSFA Science Fiction Novel Award 2019.

It takes a certain type of person to save the world, and Kong is not that person. Which is about to become a serious problem.

Kong has been working as a Trans-Temporal Copyright Protection officer since he was fifteen years old, jumping through time to arrest people threatening the status quo. And he's good at his job, the best. He's pretty certain he'll spend the rest of his life working cases, leastways until a bullet gets him or the time pressure finally crushes him. Or he might just medicate himself to death; that's always an option.

The problem is, Kong doesn't believe in it anymore, whatever 'it' is. See enough of the past and you realise people keep making the same mistakes, again and again. It's not really so surprising he's lost hope. Then something happens that changes the course of Kong's life forever: his murder.

As Kong unravels the mystery of his death, he discovers a plot that threatens not only the world but everything he understands to be true. Now Kong must decide if he can play the hero and save humanity.

And he needs to decide quickly because, for once, time is running out...
