by Richard Sapir and Warren Murphy
His name was Remo and he was squeezing water from a stone--or trying to.
Strange goings-on in the Guatemalan jungles threaten to explode into an international incident when a team of American archaeologists disappears--after spotting secret weapons in the hands of barefoot natives.
Remo and Chiun are sent in to dig for the truth, aided by a beautiful blonde archaeologist. But in the depths of the jungle they make a startling discovery--just as the ground rips apart and swallows them whole.
When the trio sees the light again, it's a light that shined centuries before. And an ancient tribal war is threatening to switch it--and all that came after it--off forever. Our heroes have prevented wars before, but even if they escape from this fix alive, they;re still at least a thousand years away from home....
Review: And back to crappy again. I like magical and science fiction elements in the series. But for some reason, the time travel aspects of this book did absolutely nothing for me. I hated this book, with its natives bearing lasers, and time travel quakes. For me, this is one of the low points of the series.
Time Trial is a waste of time, I give it .
