"This is a wonderful science fiction story. The ending was a total surprise. I knew who Elizabeth was from the start but Andras was a shock. It is a story that I hated to stop for to get some sleep at night and I got up early to keep reading. It is worth reading."
- Jocko Lee, author of Tar Kyler: Time Traveling Mercenary, Buffalo Island and Glass Wind Chimes
Dr. Steven Collins has devoted his life to one cause: finding a way to prevent a catastrophic collision between Earth and an asteroid.
But when Collins turns on his Earth-saving creation, he rips open a hole in time and space itself that hurls him forward in time, where he discovers to his horror that the device he created has caused the very global Armageddon he was trying to prevent.
Collins now must try to undo the damage he has done, but the few surviving members of the human race are slowly dying off and just beyond the shield lurks a madman who seeks to dominate the human race or exterminate it.
In a land deeply seeded in beliefs and legends, someone is eliminating the leaders of the Navajo Nation disguised as the trickster Coyote. Whoever it is has the Navajo President squarely in his sights, and everyone else “seeing things.” As the body count rises, the FBI sends in their best man, Special Agent Jack Del Rio, to put an end to the killings—a white man who is not trusted nor wanted. A decorated hero for thwarting a terrorist attack in London, Del Rio finds himself in a completely different world among the three Reservations—Navajo, Hopi and Zuni—located in the Four Corners of the American Southwest. When the past and the present collide, only one leader shall remain.
