Paratime Trouble is a new Paratime Police novel by John F. Carr featuring Verkan Vall and Dalla Hadron. Dalla leads Verkan on a merry chase through Paratime as Verkan - once again - attempts to save her bacon! This time she's searching for the noted 20th Century psychic, Jeanne Dixon, who has predicted the death of John F. Kennedy and the coming of a third world war on several Europo-America belts. Unfortunately for our two intrepid Paratimers, they both end up on the Beria Belt, where the Cuban Missile Crisis is heating up into an all-out nuclear war!
In his search for Dalla, Verkan arrives in New York just in time for the bombs to hit Manhattan. He and Ranthar Jard end up traversing the subway tunnels underneath New York City as they attempt to escape rising radioactivity and hordes of fleeing survivors. Cut off from contact with Paratime Police headquarters, the two Paratimers not only face desperate survivors, but gangs of black-jacketed thugs intent on making the best out of a bad situation. On top of that, they have to find out where Dalla has gone into hiding and bring her back to First Level before the whole time-line collapses into complete chaos!
