Last Time for TIME

Jerry Pierce was the Intertemporal Agency's most experienced operative, a seasoned time-traveler on the old subway train that whisked him back and forth through the ages. He'd already altered history by directing the Turkish conquest of Constantinople four centuries ahead of schedule and garrotting an obscure Mongol chief before the man became a problem.

Jerry’s job is to alter history, often using brutal methods.

The main problem facing the human race is the impending destruction of Earth. No one knows how it will happen, but 72 years in the future,

Hahaha. I got this for a dollar in Berkeley. It was terrible! I stopped a few pages from the end and forgot about it until last night when I took pity on it and finished. I think the cover art is the best part...
