Review :: The Jump
High school teacher Jack Riggs is having a streak of bad luck.
In a matter of hours he is arrested as a terrorist, thrown in jail, breaks up with his psycho girlfriend and is flung a century and a half into the past.
A TIME TRAVEL RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK
It’s 157 years ago in Norfolk Virginia and Jack has no money, a nearly dead iPhone in his pocket and no idea how he got there. He must assimilate if he’s to have any hope of getting back. Tormented, he tells his tale to Frances Sanger, a woman with trust issues that trusts Jack to stop a war that’s been brewing for over a hundred years. He alone holds the key to saving nearly a million people and he’s got to do it in three and a half years.
THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WANT THE CIVIL WAR FOUGHT
Abner Adkins, lawyer and cheating ex-husband of Frances represents a group of ruthless Southern terrorists that will kill anyone that tries to keep the peace — and concerning Jack, it’s personal. The Southern economy is invested in the slave trade and some 2013 ideas could reek havoc.
HELP FROM YOUNG SAMUEL CLEMENS AND RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Can Jack invent this country out of it’s bloodiest war ever while trying to stay one step ahead of those who want him dead? Jack with the help of a cast of historical superstars come up with a plan that can stop the war before it starts. Corporate spies and suicide bombers threaten to ruin it all.
Even with a real life guardian angel can Jack and his ideas survive?
