New York-- Award-winning journalist Keith F. Girard, has released his first novel "The Heidelberg Conundrum," (Amazon Press), an action-adventure, science-fiction thriller that spans time and space.
Monkee-Micky Dolenz, an avid sci-fi fan, says: "The Heidelberg Conundrum was a terrifically trippy read. Girard has put together a wild story with a great cast of characters. A wild-time-tripping ride. Now that I've read the book, I want to see the movie!"
The Heidelberg Conundrum is enthralling story of self-discovery, danger and ultimately a trip through time to a far darker period in history. It involves mystery, intrigue, deceit and, ultimately, the intertwining of two distant worlds across space and time. Think "Raiders of the Lost Ark" meets "The DaVinci Code" with a science fiction twist.
Michael is a down-on-his-luck college professor until he lands what appears to be a dream job at an elite East-Coast institute. But he faces an impossible job—solve the Heidelberg Conundrum, a theory postulated 400 years ago that's defied answers. Some believe it holds the key to time travel, including sinister forces that will stop at nothing to unlock its secrets.
Girard is editor and publisher of TheImproper Network LLC, which publishes Web magazines, including The in New York City. He has more than 35 years of experience as a journalist. In his career, he has covered such stories as the Invasion of Grenada; the Nicaraguan civil war; how U.S. companies provided Saddam Hussein with poison gas; the Reagan-era financial meltdown; the BBC scandal and Operation Desert Storm. He also served as editor-in chief at Investment News and Billboard Magazine.
Says Girard, "Most writers have great stories they develop over the years – this is one of mine! It has the luster of R. Line Stine and "Stranger Things," but with its own campy originality.
"The Heidelberg Conundrum" is the first book in a trilogy. Girard sees the book series as an enduring franchise on the order of other movie blockbusters.

I like the way this book blends history with science fiction. Tightly written, interesting characters and lots of plot twists. You'll want to read this all the way through.
