Ten years ago, the prehistoric past collided with the present as time itself underwent a tremendous disruption, transporting huge swaths of the Cretaceous Period into the world of the twentieth century. Entire neighborhoods and cities were replaced by dense primeval jungles and modern humanity suddenly found itself sharing the earth with fierce dinosaurs. In the end, desperate measures were taken to halt the disruptions and the crisis appeared to be over.
Slowly at first, but with increasing frequency, time begins to unravel once more. What's worse, Nick Paulson, Director of the newly-formed Office of Security Science, discovers that the time displacements are being manipulated by unknown parties, utilizing a mysterious new technology. Indeed, the very integrity of the space-time continuum appears to be at risk.
To preserve both the future and the past, Nick and his allies must uncover the secrets hidden within in a lost temple at the center of a dino-infested jungle–and in an enigmatic structure on the surface of the moon. But they are not alone in their quest. A cult of ruthless fanatics is also intent on controlling the time waves, and they will stop at nothing to reshape history to their own design . . . .

The action-packed but formulaic sequel to David's time-travel novel Footprints of Thunder (1996) once again races through rifts in the space-time continuum, which in the earlier novel deposited dinosaurs in the modern world and swallowed entire contemporary cities. Now, engineer and rabid environmentalist Vince Walters, with the help of his followers, hopes to return the world to a Garden of Eden via newly created black holes. It's up to Nick Paulson, the director of the Office of Security Science, to stop Walters and prevent further chaos. The key seems to lie in three rectangular anomalies one in a crater on the moon, another in Alaska and the third in the Yucat n Peninsula. While Paulson and his colleagues rush against (and through) time to discover the anomalies' secrets, David keeps up a frenetic pace with rampaging dinosaurs, shootouts, missing nuclear weapons and human sacrifices. As the climax approaches, Nick "must rescue the girl, find the bomb, and save the world." Other characters worry about the traditional paradoxes of time travel: " 'What if I meet myself?'" one asks. The answer to that and similar questions is lost in the nonstop action of this derivative science fiction thriller.
