When everything goes wrong, they keep going on.

When the first researchers from the future land in the summer of 2000 in New York City, their master time-travel device is destroyed, the professor in charge is killed, and the rest of the travelers are scattered across that ancient metropolis. They’re stranded in the past, their project in shambles from the start, and their troubles are only beginning…

The first four time-travel thrillers in one huge volume!

(Contains the complete text of Watchbearers Book 1: Millennium Crash, Book 2: Centenary Separation, Book 3: Uncertain Murder, and Book 4: Prohibited Activities)

Millennium Crash

Research Assistant Samantha finds her team leader just in time to witness one of her colleagues kill him—and she’s the only person in a position to bring the murderer to justice. Mugged on a sidewalk in the middle of the day, Team Leader Page finds help from a native of the era, but graduate physics student Matt Walker proves too curious about her—and her watch—for comfort. And after seeing her mentor die before her eyes, Team Leader Anya struggles to salvage something from the disaster, starting with rounding up the rest of the travelers—not knowing even that much has already become an impossible task. Or that circumstances are conspiring to put her in very personal peril…

Centenary Separation

A malfunction of the supposedly fixed master time-travel device sends Matt and Page to 1912 San Francisco—only days apart, though that will make all the difference—and lands Turner in the middle of a desert in 1962. Meanwhile, Nye is left alone to conduct her research in the New York City of 2003, where she’s mistaken for a terrorist, as Anya goes back to the summer of 2000 to try to change her personal past—with disastrous results…

Uncertain Murder

In the summer of 1992, tech billionaire Brandt Keener dies drinking a glass of wine while dining with his nearest if not dearest on his small private island off the Washington coast. Despite suspicious circumstances and an abundance of motives, the police find no evidence of homicide, and three weeks later the same people who were present at his death gather again for the reading of his will. Convinced the man was murdered, time-travelers Sam and Bailey inveigle themselves onto the island to investigate, but their best suspects soon start dying…

Prohibited Activities

Courting their way through the Roaring Twenties, time-travelers Matt and Page just want to enjoy history, but between corrupt cops and agitating anarchists, their concern quickly turns to making it to the thirties alive…

And the adventures continue in Book 5: Temporal Entanglement!

About the author

James Litherland is a graduate of the University of South Florida who currently resides as a Virtual Hermit in the wilds of West Tennessee. He’s lived various places and done a number of jobs – he’s been an office worker and done hard manual labor, worked (briefly) in the retail and service sectors, and he’s been an instructor. But through all that, he’s always been a writer. And after over thirty years of studying and practicing his craft, he took the plunge and published independently. He is a Christian who tries to walk the walk (and not talk much.)
