In the third leg of the Arkansas Traveler trilogy, time traveler Dr. Melvin Napier has the chance to kill the man who will invent a devastating disease. Partnering with Sam Adams—not the patriot or the beer—the two physicians soon learn that hard-core criminal behavior is about as easy as finding Pop-Tarts in 1925. After one James Bond villianesque plan fails after another, their final resort is a much older technique—one they're sure to screw up.

 

Join the fun in this witty, irreverent murder mystery that's not a whodunit but a will-they-ever-get-it-done?

 

Warning: This novel contains smoking, drinking, salty words in two languages, and disappointingly poor knowledge of boating mechanics.

What People Are Saying

 

5.0 out of 5 stars:  A Darkly Comic Time Travel Adventure
"This engaging story with lots of dark humor throws two doctors into a time travel mission to stop a man who will invent a drug that will kill half of humanity. Their hilariously amateur attempts, like the corned beef trail to a tent in the woods, keep the target alive despite the high stakes. The story leaves the reader eager to see how these unlikely heroes will overcome their challenges in a world filled with cigarette smoke, liquor and profanity."

The second installment of the Arkansas Traveler series finds happily-married Dr. Melvin Napier boarding a plane—a plane destined to crash over fifty years in the past. Stranded and injured in 1950 Little Rock, Melvin keeps his identity quiet as he works to return to all he holds dear: a wife, two sons, and chocolate Pop-Tarts.


But when rumors spread that a good-looking, single young doctor has arrived in the small Southern city, Melvin's problems have only just begun. Sally Davis, his unfiltered, snarky, next-door neighbor, will stop at nothing to make him fall in love with her, including deceit, fake-dating, and some light breaking and entering. The only thing she won't do is reveal her most guarded secret.


Join us on this captivating journey as Melvin fights his way back to his one true love. Or has he found another?

Meet Stanley Westfield, a boy from the little town of Sugarfield whose dream is to become an Ophthalmologist. Worried he won't get into med school, Stanley borrows an ID from Melvin Napier, a drunken slacker, and takes the med school entrance exam as a practice run before retaking it under his real name.
 
Now, Stanley's a 1st-year medical student with one of the highest med school entrance exam scores in history, second only to Melvin, whom Stanley gave the highest score ever recorded. 
 
Melvin's high score makes him famous and pressures him to give medical school a try. 
But the chances of history's highest scores coming from two kids from the same little town are less than zero, and the Undergraduate Dean of Medicine isn't fooled. He's sure they cheated. He just isn't sure how—yet.

 

Join us in this light-hearted adventure as Stanley juggles the rigors of med school, staying one step ahead of the Dean and keeping a complete slacker from exposing it all.
