Harry August is on his deathbed. Again.
 
No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. Nothing ever changes.
 
Until now.
 
As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. 'I nearly missed you, Doctor August,' she says. 'I need to send a message.'
 
This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.
 
Claire North is a pseudonym for an acclaimed British author who has previously published several novels. This book is completely different from any of them.
