They meet Elemer Urban, a charming older man full of intriguing, if far-fetched, anecdotes. Elemer insists that the X-crystals on his strange grey and black ring are linked to time travel and challenges Alan and Mel to take up a quest of his devising.
The lovers firmly believe that Elemer is a crackpot charlatan, and they set out to prove it, but they soon find themselves on an adventure in London, Johannesburg, the Free State — and the deep, deep past — that reveals to them a world they could never have imagined.
