  • Traveling backward in time, Don Miguel Navarro (a junior officer in the Society of Time) had to undo the errors and interruptions of other time-interlopers. Even the most insignificant nudging of the past could entirely alter the present. And he suspected that a maniacal genius - possibly a fellow-worker - crazed with a desire for nationalist vindication had plotted to alter the victorious outcome of the Spanish Armada of 1588 - thus changing recorded history and perhaps even imperiling the Imperial Spanish Empire of 1988.  If Don Miguel did not successfully intercede, when he came back to the present he might find a different world...a different time...a time in which he probably didn't even exist.

  • Man's concept of time forms a fundamental part of modern life. From the everyday time experience of day and night, the seasons,  the oddities of time zones and the International Date Line, to the deeper mysteries of  relativity theory, quantum mechanics, the concept of parallel universes and physical timewarps, the paradoxes and the possibilities of our relationship with time are constantly expanding in the face of fresh discoveries. While our watches and calendars are witness to the fact that time flows inexorably forward, at the other extreme black holes negate time altogether, making it stand still. In a wider context, the latest scientific theories are strikingly reminiscent of older philosophical ideas embracing such phenomena as precognition, reincarnation and dream telepathy. In this examination  of time, there are startling new insights into the nature of reality and the possibility that timewarps do exist.

As he carries out rescue after rescue, he becomes more and more embroiled in  the politics surrounding the virus and its cure.
