When Phil D'Amato, NYPD forensic detective on loan in Santa Cruz, CA, takes a call from a lady physicist about her missing husband, he has no idea that her life, his life, and every other scientist working on a top-secret time travel project will soon be in dire jeopardy. As the number of dead, each killed in a different way, begins to mount and includes not only scientists but anyone who knows the true nature of their work, D'Amato starts to realize that the suspect is not any one person or group but something much more sinister and dangerous. Could it be the Universe itself, bent on protecting itself from the unraveling that time travel could bring? If so, then time is running out for Phil to protect himself and those he loves from the Universe's chronology protection program."The Chronology Protection Case" brings to the screen Paul Levinson's Nebula and Edgar nominated story, and marks the first appearance of Dr. Phil D'Amato, who appears in Levinson's other award-winning novels and stories.
