Police officer Monica Jansson is exploring the burned-out home of a reclusive--some say mad, others allege dangerous--scientist who seems to have vanished.

It is the prototype of an invention that will change the way humankind views the world forever.

And the further away a stepper travels, the stranger -- and sometimes more dangerous -- the Earths become
