After they are recruited to confront a new danger threatening to instigate a new Indian war, John, Julia, and their former team that includes Father Peter Harrigan and genius black inventor Isaiah embark on a return expedition to the untamed western territories. As they face monster machines and dangers from Earth’s past, now only time will tell if they can survive the new horror associated with an international criminal cartel and stop a looming war, before it is too late for all of them.
In this continuing science fiction tale, a museum professor and his former special agent wife must gather their eclectic team and attempt to complete another dangerous assignment in a land threatened by the possibility of another ghastly war.
