William Nolan, a professor at the University of London, scares his wife Katherine very badly one day when he comes home holding what he calls a defective Telon Analyzer. He demands that she give him his passport and a credit card. Calling himself "Adrian", William then arrives in small town Ephraim, Wisconsin, and demands to see the oldest Whitemore daughter who will tell him where Menonan might be. Laura is the older Whitemore sister, Michelle the younger, and Laura is in no shape to deal with the stranger with the British accent who calls himself "Adrian", gets into fights at the local bars, and manages to get into Laura's small home without a key. Laura is barely recovered from the horrific death of her love, Steven Morrison, and still smokes and drinks brandy mixed with her coke in the morning before she goes off to her job at the Blue Seagull where lecherous owner Adam Blake pursues her. The local Bitterman brother and sister have an old family homestead that is reputed to be haunted and "Adrian" wants the Telon which is in that house's attic. "Adrian" frightens people as he turns up here and there around town. What is going on and what is a Telon and who is this Menonan?
"Escape from Eternity" is science fiction at its creepy best as British professor William Nolan, who has turned into "Adrian" or thinks he has, comes to a little town in Wisconsin that is filled with its own secrets that may or may not concern "Adrian". Laura Whitemore and her sister Michelle not only have to deal with "Adrian" and the ruckus he stirs up around small town Ephraim, but also with the Bittermores and their underhanded nephew, Adam Blake, and events from the past that are far from normal. The story's ending is anything but calm, and readers will enjoy "Escape from Eternity", just not on a windy autumn night with branches hitting against the window.
