Now this renowned actor has created a brand new adventure in a thrilling blend of science fiction and the legend of the American West...In Tombstone, 1881, there's many a person without a past. Folks don't ask a lot of questions, and a man's business is his own. But Macklin is a man with no memory, and what he doesn't remember could kill him--for he is not of this world.A native of a far-distant planet, Macklin has been sent to Earth to warn humanity of a coming invasion. He's landed in the Arizona territories, where the harsh battle of the OK Corral is about to erupt. He's also been followed--by two bounty hunters out to kill him. As Macklin struggles to make sense of this new frontier, brief visions haunt his memory--flashes of death and destruction on an alien world. Each attempt to recover his memories becomes more and more desperate--for only in his past can Macklin find the key to stop Earth's destruction...
