Pryzwarra is impressed with Dougs detective expertise, and asks him to join a newly formed governmental detective unit whose first case is to investigate the bombing. Led by Dr. Alexander Denny Adam Goldberg, they investigate the events before the explosion by using a program called Snow White, which enables them to look into the pastdays,hours,minutes, 45 seconds, 14.5 nanoseconds in detail by using several satellites to form a triangulated image of events. The system is limited in that they can only see past events once there is no fast forwarding or rewinding, although they can record everything. Convinced that Claire is a vital link, Doug persuades them to focus on her. While investigating Claires past through Snow White, the bomber calls her to buy the SUV she has for sale so he can use it for the bomb. Although he doesnt buy her car, the Snow White team now knows exactly where and when the terrorist was during the call.Doug finds out Snow White is actually a time window, and can send inanimate objects into the past. Despite Dennys protests against tampering with the past, Doug has the team send a note back to his past self with the time and place to stop the ferry bomber. Instead, his partner Larry Minuti gets the note and while following up on it he is shot by the terrorist, setting up his death in the present. The team attempts to follow the terrorist, who takes Minuti with him, but he moves ouside of Snow Whites range. Doug is able to follow him in the present using a Snow White like helmet that increases the machines range, and is able to track him to the terrorists home. In the past time, Minuti regains consciousness, but is killed and burned by the terrorist.
