When time travel allows for a murderer to be executed prior to the crime ever being committed, is it justice, or revenge? For Homicide Detective Jack King, it’s the only chance to save his family from a psychopathic assassin.
Saint Augustine, FL, April 28, 2015 –(PR.com)– Scheduled for release on 5/1/2015, the novel “BackTrek” is the first of three science fiction novels to be published by IONized Publishing Group from Florida Indie Science Fiction Author, Kelvin Kelley. Set in the near future, the story explores the moral dilemma faced by ex Army CID, Homicide Detective Jack King, when his entire family is brutally slaughtered by a psychopathic assassin. He travels back in time through an experimental portal in an effort to stop the murders before they can occur. If he fails, their blood will be on his hands.
The newly functioning machine can only open a portal to a specific point in the past. June 7th at 1845 hours, the night his family died. But when Jack emerges in the past, he cannot stop events from occurring as they did the first time. He desperately races against time tracking the man who will kill his family, while trying to avoid his other self and accidentally setting off a sequence of events that could disrupt the future forever. If he can stop the killer in time, they live. If not, they die. Again.
In recent interview with GoodReads about “BackTrek,” Kelley stated, “What would happen if you could go back in time, in your own timeline, and affect events before they occurred. This spawned the idea that if in fact you could travel backwards in time, could you stop a crime before it was ever committed, and if so, what moral ramifications would come to light, and how would you deal with them.”
The ebook edition is available for pre-order now through Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and IBooks, and is set for final global release by IONized Publishing Group on 5/1/2015, with the print edition scheduled for release on 6/1/2015. Kelley’s second book in the three book deal with IPG, Immortal, is also available for pre-order, with an announced global release date of 7/1/2015. This second science fiction novel explores the morality of survival of the species in a post apocalyptic world.
