Paradox Bound, by Peter Clines -
Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store. So why doesn't Eli
Teague want to leave? Not that he's ever admit it, but maybe he's waiting - waiting for
the traveler to come back. The on who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just
long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a
squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock
rifle, and steampunked Model-A Ford. The one who's pursued by...somthing. So when
the mysterious traveler finally appears, Eli's determined that this time, he's going to
get answers. To make sense of the mystery at its heart, he must embark on a
breakneck chase across the country and through two centuries of history - with
nothing less that America's past, present, and future at stake.
