“The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity—or it will move apart.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

By the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author and former Green Beret.

14 February 1929: Gunmen massacre seven people in the infamous St. Valentines Day Massacre. Al Capone is consolidating his grip on the Outfit in Chicago. But what if it turns out very differently?

14 February 1945: President Roosevelt, heading home from the Yalta Conference, stops on the Great Bitter Lake to meet King Idn Saud of Saudi Arabia to discuss a relatively new topic: Arab oil. And a Jewish homeland. What if the talks turned out very differently?

14 February 1779: Captain Cook, famed explorer of the Pacific, meets his fate in Hawaii. What if he survived?

14 February 278: Saint Valentine is beheaded near the Milvian Bridge. What if he survived?

14 February 1945: The Dresden Firebombing. Kurt Vonnegut is in a slaughterhouse as the first bombers appear overheard. What if . . .

14 February 1946: The ENIAC computer, programmed by six women, is unveiled to the public. The press thinks the women are simply models. Someone wants to computer to fail.

The mission, as always for the Time Patrol, seems straight-forward: keep history intact. No matter the cost.

But this time, things go very differently than in previous missions and one of the team members must make the ultimate sacrifice.

Reviews for Bob Mayer’s science fiction:
“Quantum Leap on steroids!” Book List.
Terry Brooks: “Spell-binding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific story-telling.”
Kirkus “A crackling science thriller in the vein of Crichton that mixes action with science fiction.”
Publishers Weekly: “The best combination of science fiction and technothriller this year.”
