About the Book

Our story begins in 1988. The Cold War continues. David Blade is a spy for a super secret espionage agency, AEGIS (Allied Espionage Group Intelligence Service) which serves as a watchdog over western intelligence agencies.  Blade´s employer, AEGIS, also handles missions deemed too politically difficult for the CIA or MI5.  Our story opens with Blade completing a mission.  On returning to AEGIS headquarters Blade is told he is to old for fieldwork and is to be retired.  Events transpiring in a Russian research facility cause AEGIS to bring Blade out of his recent forced retirement and send him into Siberia for one last mission.  An accident at the Soviet research facility has caused the Chief Soviet scientist to discover a crude means of time travel into the past.  The accident threw his daughter and a logbook of important data into the past to the year 1908.  The leader of the first KGB team sent back in time to retrieve the data and girl goes rogue kills his teammates takes the girl and defects into 1908.  Blade must follow her trail to the past and find her and the data before another competing KGB team.  Blade must display initiative and creativity in this low-tech environment as he follows the girl´s trail across Siberia on the Trans-Siberian Express into Czarist Russia and Moscow. Blade is competing against time in more ways than one as he must return the woman to the specific point where they were inserted to the past in Siberia before she Phase-Locks with the past. Blade has only 23 days to find her in Moscow and return her to Siberia using 1908 modes of transport.
