Raymond Kidd is a time traveller. Only he doesn't want to be. He has no say in when or where he goes, or to which time. Plus, he has to die to do it. In The Flaw in the Fabric, the first book in Jim Lindsey's trilogy A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls, a shortcut through a cemetery during a hurricane takes Raymond Kidd the long way around through another century and another identity. In 1860 Halifax, he's ship's captain Oliver Cole, just released from the madhouse.
