Chris Wade shifts between the present-day world, where he's broke and lives in a bad neighborhood, and 1959, where he lives the life of his private eye grandfather, "solving" cases by returning to the present-day to do research on the Internet.

McMillan Palgrave

In this neighborhood, make a wrong turn…

… and you're history.

Mickey Wade is a recently-unemployed journalist who lucked into a rent-free apartment—his sick grandfather's place. The only problem: it's in a lousy neighborhood—the one where Mickey grew up, in fact. The one he was so desperate to escape.

But now he's back. Dead broke. And just when he thinks he's reached rock bottom, Mickey wakes up in the past. Literally.

At first he thinks it's a dream. All of the stores he remembered from his childhood, the cars, the rumble of the elevated train. But as he digs deeper into the past, searching for answers about the grandfather he hardly knows, Mickey meets the twelve-year-old kid who lives in the apartment below.

The kid who will grow up to someday murder Mickey's father, in Duane Swierczynski's Expiration Date.
