Time Travel
by Don Keirle

"Fordy fired his ready drawn weapon and registered the look of surprise on the chairman's face as the bullet entered his brain."

For James Whistler, often nicknamed "the Whistler," time travel is not a theory. He and his friends have discovered that such a thing not only can but does exist. But how best to investigate the phenomena and whether or not, in the long run, it is worth pursuing are questions that will soon demand answers. Thankfully, at the Whistler's side are close companions with which he can share ideas and rely on in times of crisis, because there are some out there whose agendas are far less pure than his.

In this final book of the author's space trilogy, the story begins with the Whistler and his colleague at the Space Administration, Helen Svensson, focused on developing a project to research the anomalies they had discovered in previous journeys through time. Although originally designed to be top secret, they very quickly include family and friends with whom they have worked in the past. Still, they must keep most of what they investigate under wraps because past experience has taught them that knowledge in the wrong hands can lead to disaster. Complicating their efforts is the infiltration of organized crime into their organization, and to profit from the Space Administration's work, members of the Mob will resort to death threats or worse to get what they want.

Set in the future when travel between established bases within our solar system is a reality and where Titan, Saturn's largest moon, hosts a prison complex, Keirle's book is more of a look at life rather than the typical science fiction adventure novel. While the plot does include intrigue and suspense, the social lives of the Whistler's inner circle as well as detailed descriptions of their experimental research make up the bulk of the story line, which makes for a unique entry into the genre.
