Overview

5,000 years ago, B’ALAM AGAB — NIGHT JAGUAR — carves a series of petroglyphs that speak of the Fifth World, the one to come after December 21, 2012. Night Jaguar is murdered and the carvings are buried under a pile of boulders.
In present-day Yucatán, PROFESSOR BRIAN AVERY and his assistant, TRAVIS DILLMAN, are working at what had been an archaeological dig until physicist SARAH GALLAGHER arrives and turns the project into something else entirely — a veritable behemoth of a construction project. It seems to Dillman that Avery resents the presence of Gallagher, but the reality is that, unbeknown to her, Gallagher is Avery’s daughter, and the uneasiness he has around her is caused by the fact that he has been unable to work up the courage to tell her of their true relationship. Avery confides to Dillman that his daughter’s gigantic project is actually a prototype time machine, centered between a series of particle accelerators, and that their jobs as archaeologists will become more fascinating than ever.

Editorial Reviews

John Dietzler
Very interesting book...reminded me of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures. Liked the way the book was broke down chapter wise. Had a hard time putting it down...definitely a 5-Star read!
Tammy Schneider
I want to say I was really impressed at how well Mr. MacCallum writes. His sentences flow well, his thoughts are cohesive and his words paint wonderful pictures. I was most impressed with the character development. The characters are painted so well that the reader actually feels they know that person. That ability is such an important part of tying the reader to the story!

Meet the Author

Leigh MacCallum, who was born in Washington DC, has spent most of his life traveling the U.S. and the world, visiting or living in 49 states and 15 countries. As an anthropology major in college, he developed a fascination with the mythologies of the world. Either a Renaissance man or Jack-of-all-trades (depending, largely, upon your personal viewpoint), he worked through the years as an intelligence operative, a teacher and a singer/songwriter, among a myriad of other occupations.

He now divides his years between Wisconsin and Florida, where he comfortably labors over his novels, the settings and characters of which reflect his lifelong interest in the world’s myths and legends.
