“The past is entombed in the present, the world is its own enduring monument; and that which is true of its physical is likewise true of its mental career. There are mental fossils for psychologists as there are mineral fossils for the geologists—one investigates the earth, while the other explores the human beings who have roamed over its surface in the shadows. Aye, the mental telescope is now discovered which may pierce the depths of the past and bring us in full view of the grand and tragic passages of ancient history.” -Joseph Rodes Buchanan
Since the age of 9, Matt Turner's gift of psychometry has remained both blessing and curse. As a living window into the past, he's returned to humankind many of today’s most stunning lost histories. Not only a resource to historian’s, Matt has assisted detectives in solving cases both cold and hot, and has in the process saved countless lives.
Sadly, a talent like Matt’s can only be kept secret for so long, and those who covet lost and rare items view him only as a prized tool. It’s these unscrupulous few who cause Matt to withdraw from society, robbing the world of one of its most precious resources.
