“A perfect blend of Science Fiction and Alternate History”
It’s a blend of Science Fiction, Alternate History, with a touch of spiritual mysticism thrown in.
It’s 1977. New York cab driver, Mike Redolfo, is abducted by aliens as a result of a mistaken identity and is now stranded on planet Vost.
Back in 1944, World War II rages. The architect of the Holocaust, Heinrich Himmler, is about to order the execution of all concentration camp prisoners, while a mysterious man and his Jewish fiancée are fleeing Nazi occupied Prague.
Unable to return to Earth, Redolfo manages to find a job. His taxi is modified for air travel and he starts work as a cab driver, ferrying the planet’s diverse alien species around the capital city.
His luck runs out again, however, as he unwittingly gets involved with a shady gang of alien criminals, and discovers to his horror that his actions have brought the planet to the brink of catastrophe.
With millions of alien and human lives at stake, the link between the two timelines becomes clear.
Determined to undo the harm he has done, Redolfo discovers secrets from the past that could hold the key to saving the planet.

Aimed at an adult or even young adult audience, for fans of Space Opera, and Historical fiction, and even fans of Wicca and Celtic Mythology.
