The BEFORE Boxset
Two time-travel tales of love and murder…
BEFORE THE KILLING
In the summer of 1973, 19-year-old Cassie returns to her home town on the Massachusetts coast after her first year away at college. The next day, her boyfriend, Julian, is implicated in a brutal killing.
Seven years later, a freak occurrence gives Cassie the ability to cast her consciousness back in time to a younger version of herself, allowing her to re-live that earlier time with the benefit of foreknowledge. Convinced of Julian’s innocence, she goes back to witness the murder and the events leading up to it. Afterward, she struggles to find a way to prove what really happened, while the killer stalks her past and present lives, determined to silence her.
BEFORE SHE WAS TAKEN
In 2019 California, twenty-five-year-old Rebecca Danser gains the ability to cast her thoughts back into the past, allowing her to re-live that earlier time with the benefit of foreknowledge.
Rebecca’s life is a mess because her younger sister, Sadie, disappeared on her watch when they were both children. At first, she uses her new power to avoid committing to a relationship, but after her father challenges her to fix her dead-end life, she gathers the courage to send her mind nineteen years into the past to her six-year-old self. Setting herself up to be kidnapped in place of her sister, she witnesses the abduction firsthand.
After returning to the present, Rebecca tracks the kidnapper’s current location, desperate to learn Sadie’s fate and save her if there’s any chance she’s still alive. It’s on her alone to solve the crime, since she has no proof she can present to the police. But her quest for justice and her own survival are threatened by the shocking circumstances she uncovers.
