Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595203108, Paperback)

Robert Paolucci has a once in a lifetime chance to travel back in time and save the life of his father, a pioneering scientist who has just made an amazing discovery—but in the balance hangs the course of world history—and hundreds of millions of lives. In 1960, Edward Paolucci, a research scientist, has just developed a revolutionary new fuel source worth billions of dollars. A fuel source that will put the oil companies out of business. A day after his discovery, he dies in a suspicious airplane crash and his research perishes along with him. Twenty-three years later, his son, Robert, travels back in time and stumbles upon an industrial espionage plot involving his unsuspecting father. He stops his father from boarding the doomed flight. But, unknown to him, Senator John F. Kennedy, campaigning for the Presidency, is on standby and boards the plane in his father’s absence. History is forever changed; Senator Kennedy dies in the airplane crash and Richard Nixon captures the White House. Nixon handles the Cuban Missile Crisis much more aggressively than Kennedy and the result is a nuclear war between the USSR and United States—World War III. Robert realizes that in order to set history right, he must travel back in time again and let his father board the plane--he must lose him all over again. Hundreds of millions of lives and the course of world history hang in the balance. This is easier said than done--two men have been spying on his father, waiting to steal his work and murder him once he completes his research.
