With apocalypse by asteroid due in a fortnight, the last thing Eve Karvan should be worrying about is her paycheck. Yet one last shift at the Natural History Museum is all that stands between her and being stuck in a high-risk area come A-Day. She’s convinced it will be a quiet one, until her equipment picks up activity in the perimeter and she comes face to face with none other than her former lover.
Neil Riccard has one thing in common with Eve—he can’t afford to quit his job. Not because it would penalise him financially, but because the planet’s impending expiration date seems to have set the netherworld abuzz with excitement. All kinds of miscreants are creeping into our world and the newest rift has opened in the Natural History Museum. The last person he expects to run into when he goes to seal it is Eve, the shapeshifter who walked out on him ten years ago.
Passions ignite as the pair are thrown together in a race against the clock, at the mercy of a man who bears a startling resemblance to Neil.
