What happens when a seventeenth-century bad guy has twenty-first-century technology?

An accident with an antigravity machine catapulted Peter Schock and Kate Dyer back to 1763. A bungled rescue attempt leaves Peter stranded in the eighteenth century while a terrifying villain, the Tar Man, takes his place and explodes onto twenty-first-century London. Concerned about the potentially catastrophic effects of time travel, the NASA scientists responsible for the situation question whether it is right to rescue Peter. Kate decides to take matters into her own hands, but things don't go as planned. Soon the physical effects of time travel begin to have a disturbing effect on her. Meanwhile, in our century, the Tar Man wreaks havoc in a city whose police force is powerless to stop him.Set against a backdrop of contemporary London and revolutionary France, The Time Thief is the sequel to the acclaimed The Time Travelers.

Amazing book and series. Recommended. Everyone should read it but there are some rather big words and it can get complicating.

Great series! thought it's confusing in some parts... but very entertaining! but if u have read the Harry potter series, Harry potter is still better in my opinion, but the Gideon trilogy is awesome too!
The title of the first book is "the time travelers" but in the library it's called "Gideon the cutpurse" cause they changed the title and the library isn't so up to date.
