Manny Gutiérrez marks his publishing debut with the release of “This Time: A 21st-Century Look at an Ancient Mystery That Changed the World” (published by LifeRich Publishing). This novel follows the “best known rebel in history” as he returns after several centuries and turns the modern world upside down.

It was Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2000. A series of unexpected and unexplainable deaths happens across the globe during the birth of the only child of a rebellious young couple. Two clues group the hundreds of cases together, but only the sharpest and hardest-working investigators and journalists see these clues.

The child, a unique individual, is going to turn the world upside down. Although his power and actions are reminiscent of the best known rebel in history, his noble approach will delight his followers and make deadly enemies of his opponents. Will he succeed in his personal quest?

A mixture of science fiction, action and dedicated detective work, “This Time” addresses modern questions and its possible solutions.

“I wanted to share my ideas and beliefs. I wanted to make readers sit back and ponder ‘What if?’ about several issues. My personal particular ‘take’ on interrelated major subjects can elicit questions that I will gladly attempt to address in the book’s website,” Gutiérrez shares.
