Cover blurb:
Yquatine — cultural, political and economic centre of the Minerva System. A planet with a month to live.

Fitz knows. He was there when Yquatine fell. Now, trapped a month in the past he doesn’t know if the Doctor survived. He doesn’t know where Compassion has gone. He doesn’t know who the invaders will be. But he does know the date and time when he will die with the millions of others.

The Doctor teams up with Lou Lombardo — part time dodgy temporal gadget salesman and full time pie seller. Compassion is lost in time and space. And Fitz is living out his final days working in a seedy cocktail bar. Until he meets Arielle... But is the President’s runaway girlfriend really the best person to shack up with?

As the Doctor tries to talk sense into the politicians and soldiers, and Compassion tries to avert the war, Fitz is about to discover that things can only get worse.

This is another in the series of original adventures for the Eighth Doctor.
