Overview

Camila Hidalgo, the White House spokesperson, wants her ex-husband, Trent Calloway, to investigate Justin Logos, a controversial New Age cult leader. But Calloway, a former psychic spy who is trying to live a quiet life in the Southwest, thinks there's no reason for the government to intrude in Logos's life. So he and his colleague 'Doc' refuse to use their special talent—remote viewing, the ability to psychically see events occurring elsewhere.

But when a lethal virus is released in Washington, D.C., Calloway pinpoints its source to followers of Logos, a man proclaimed by some as the reincarnation of Jesus Christ and called the Anti-Christ by others. Now Calloway, exposed to the virus and facing his own death, must extend his abilities into a new realm.

He attempts to return to the near past to create an alternate reality, one where the virus has not been released. In doing so, he hopes to bring back Camila, who he still loves. If he succeeds, he can save lives, including his own, and prevent the chaos that follows. But he soon realizes that he might be a tool in a cosmic plan with far worse consequences than the ones he hoped to elude.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A psychic with the ability to time-travel, Trent Calloway is the African-American mystery-hunting hero first introduced in PSI/Net. In this second collaboration between actor Williams and Edgar Award winner MacGregor (Hawk Moon), Trent is offered the chance to rekindle his relationship with his ex-wife, Camila Hidalgo. Now the White House press secretary, Camila--who left Trent years ago, when his work as a psychic spy (or remote-viewer) took over his life--shows up at Trent's door to recruit him for a sensitive assignment. Sparks fly, and Trent agrees to check out the job. A healer, Justin, claims to be the son of God--some people think he's the Anti-Christ; others call him a yahoo prophesizing his own rise to power. Regardless, the White House wants him targeted for psychic spying. But when Trent sees Justin in person, he finds the healer harmless and decides to turn down the assignment--at least until a bioterrorist attack connected to Justin's followers sends the world into turmoil. In the ensuing action, Trent psychically contacts himself in the past; is contacted by his future self; comes face to face with the good-vs.-evil power struggle at the center of the universe; and tangles with an old nemesis in an alternate universe. The plot is complicated, but it's more fuss than fun, and predictable; the characters are complex, but not all that interesting; most of the action is predictable, the main characters stock, the prose is mediocre. The title does contain a decent pun, however. (Aug.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Internet Book Watch
Camila Hidalgo is the presidential press secretary. She was once married to Trent Calloway, a CIA remote psychic viewer, but divorced him because he was never home. Eventually, Trent resigned from his espionage job to become a riverboat guide in the Southwest. Though they still love one another, they have not seen each other in six years. However, suddenly Camila waits for Trent to return from a rafting trip. Her bosses want him to psychically spy on Justin Logan, a healer some claim is the Messiah, and the man's patron Melissa Dahl. Trent refuses to invade Justin's privacy, but soon regrets his decision as Melissa unleashes three deadly viruses in the nation's capital that kill many people including Camila. Trent must go back in time to fix what he could have prevented the first time around. Just In Time is just incredible as a tongue in cheek look at remote psychic espionage. Billy Dee Williams and Rob MacGregor bring a modern day "Get Smart" satire of the spy novel that will please those readers who enjoy an amusing thriller. Besides those who gain pleasure from strong doses of irony, new Age enthusiasts will relish this tale.

    Calloway's back and he's better than ever!

    Like its predecessor, Psi/Net, Just/In Time focuses on remote viewer and former psychic spy, Trent Calloway. At the behest of his ex-wife a spokesperson for the White House (whom he still loves) Calloway reluctantly agrees to investigate Justin Logos, a controversial New Age style cult leader, and a man proclaimed by some as the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. Authors Williams and MacGregor cleverly make use of time travel and alternate realities in creating a story that keeps you enthralled from first page to last. I highly recommend this book as a really great read, and hope that there will be another Trent Calloway adventure soon.
