"To anyone who glanced casually inside the detention room the young man sitting there did not seem very formidable…unless one was observant enough to note those light-gray eyes and catch a chilling, measuring expression showing now and then for an instant in their depths."
The young man in question, Ross Murdock, is about to embark upon the adventure of his life. In order to avoid prosecution, he reluctantly joins Operation Retrograde, whose members are exploring various time periods.
Their goal? To find out where – and when – the ‘Reds’ are obtaining certain scientific breakthroughs, in order to maintain the balance of global power. An outsider in his own time, Ross becomes an outsider in other times as well, and faces one challenge after another. Will he succeed? Or will he inadvertently alter time forever?
The Time Traders combines some fact with much fantasy to produce a believable result. Time travel is not new in science fiction nor is the anti-social hero a particularly fresh type, but in Miss Norton’s skilled hands, the story of Ross Murdock’s adventures in the past … makes fascinating reading. (New York Times Book Review)
Well plotted, full of suspense, with many provocative concepts. Recommended wherever science fiction is needed. (Library Journal)
