What would happen if the "Me Generation" could be transported back to live among the souls of "The Greatest Generation"? Two cynical wiseguys learn the answer in
Nathaniel Allen and Daniel O'Shea, publicly serving as front men for a world Christian relief organization, are siphoning off food and medicine to corrupt foreign officials in exchange for "blood emeralds." On a break in London, they opt for a midnight trip in a pre-WWII subway train to visit old Underground sites…but their evening jaunt turns into the ultimate "tourist trap." A train wreck leaves Nate and Dan the sole survivors – and somehow transported back to and stranded in 1940 London at the dawn of the Nazi Blitz. That is where their perilous adventure in time begins as their search for a way home leads them into a plot to drive England into financial ruin – and, perhaps, to a chance to redeem themselves in the past for their futures. Or is it their present?
The action and intrigue don't stop until they – and you – learn the answer in TIME STEP.
Brent Monahan has spent his life fascinated with and passionate about questioning the world - and arriving at unique, thoughtful, insightful and, quite often, spear-tip pointedly amusing answers that find their expression in his many novels. Whether he is offering a rational explanation to an historical haunting, as in The Bell Witch: An American Haunting, or delving into the psyches and machinations of such icons of financial and political power as J.P. Morgan in The Jekyl Island Club, Mr. Monahan does so with an unparalleled depth of research and smart, witty writing that has engaged decades of readers and garnered him considerable critical recognition from both reviewers and his peers.
Mr. Monahan has authored twelve novels, two of which have been made into movies - including An American Haunting, starring Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek. He has taught writing at Rutgers University and Westminster Choir College of Rider University, even though his terminal degree was in musical arts from Indiana University, Bloomington. He lives in Yardley, Pennsylvania.
