|Plot Summary of Just In Time|
|" Archaeologist Joseph Belisar discovers several twenty-first century artifacts buried deeply in a two-thousand-year-old Anasazi site. Examination reveals that these artifacts belong to his friend and the leader of their recent mission to Mars, Mike Angel.
When Dr. Ivan Medvedev finds a titanium surgical pin in the leg of a mummy found at the site, Mike knows that they must have been present when the objects were buried and the Indian lived.
Mike and his "crew" adapt the AI spaceship to be able to bend time, as well as space, and travel to explore the life and times of the Ancestral Puebloans of the American Desert Southwest.
During the adventure, Mike discovers that his feelings for crew-mate and journalist Svetlana Gerasova are deeper than he anticipated."
