The Return To Gibraltar
The law is life, and with that HORACE BATES begins a journey into a world of science and politics. Horace, a law student at Harvard, is soon at the center of a "PROGRAM" designed to enable time sequence ----- time travel.
In this rush for new science there are men like the mysterious DEMETRI IVANOVICH, who - appears to have melted from the Russian cold war and right into the slash suburbs of America. Men like TIMMY, the Texan, - eager and ready for the next frontier. HORACE must ultimately contend with who he is and what time-change does for the human heart.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I loved getting to know Horace “Ray” Bates, and Ken does a splendid job of bringing this character to life. I didn’t want the book to end, and look forward to his future adventures. After all, “the law is the life,” and there is more for him to do. Horace is a third year law student at Harvard, and all is going great – his classes are interesting and he is doing very well in them, a full-time associate position is offered at a great law firm, and a new sexy girlfriend completes things. But at the edges of his life a mysterious person keeps appearing, who then makes an unusual and irresistible offer… Highly recommended!
A good read. The narrative is engaging. If you like science fiction that lets you think about history then the possible consequences of racism. Should be a teaching tool on racism and co-existence.
