Ross Murdock, a convicted criminal, is a â€œvolunteerâ€ for a secret government project: Operation Retrograde. Unwillingly at first, but with increasing fervor, Murdock becomes a member of the team fighting the strangest battle of the Cold War. The Russians have infiltrated an unknown era of the past and developed powerful new weapons by utilizing some lost technology. American scientists also have the means to transport men into the past, and it becomes imperative that Operation Retrograde succeed in finding and tapping the source of the Russianâ€™s secret weapons. Murdock and the other members of his team embark on a dangerous and frantic search of almost forgotten time periods in a Cold War where the Past has become the battlefield of the future.
If it is possible to conquer space, then perhaps it is also possible to conquer time. At least that was the theory American scientists were exploring in an effort to explain the new sources of knowledge the Russians possessed. Perhaps Russian scientists had discovered how to transport themselves back in time in order to learn long forgotten secrets of the past. That was why Ross Murdock, above average in intelligence, found himself on a hush-hush government project at a secret base in the Arctic.
Key Out of Time -the fourth book in the Time Traders series, following The Time Traders, Galactic Derelict, and The Defiant Agents- again features Ross Murdock as the hero. Accompanying a group of settlers to the now-empty water-planet Hawaika, he is sent back in time through a Time Gate... and must learn to survive ten thousand years in the past!
Travis Fox, Apache Indian and an expert in time travel, volunteers for a mission to colonize the planet of Topaz. But when he and his fellow Apaches find themselves reverting to the ways of their ancient warrior race, Fox suspects that a dangerous force is responsible--and that there's more at stake than just their lives.
