Perils of a misplaced time traveler
Crystal Milbury, a tourist from 2124, dies in transport, but her brain patterns travel on to 1972, taking residence in a lightning-struck Boston Terrier. In a desperate effort to find and rescue her, the New Cheese time travel agency unwittingly sets off a series of harebrained misadventures. Crystal will need to survive a shotgun-wielding madwoman, a dog-napping eleven-year-old, and her own murderous husband before she can return, preferably alive. And human.

Russell's imagination kicks into overdrive as time traveler Crystal Milbury's visit to 1972 small-town Indiana goes awry, with her emergence as a dog sparking wacky complications.  With plot development evoking the world of farce, the ensuing chaos provides a delightful read. Supporting characters are defined mostly by their roles in the bizarre mosaic of events, but bratty Lucy Frazier and Crystal's sinister husband, Comstock Scott, deserve mention. The reader who can plow through the almost too-complex twists and turns will find the originality of the central concept diffuses overtones of situation comedy.
