In 1985, with much fanfare, a time capsule was buried under the front lawn of a small-town county courthouse, to be reopened in 2085. But just twenty years later, in the dead of night, the capsule is dug up, its contents stolen. That same night, one of the contributors to the capsule is brutally slain in his home - with no sign of forced entry or indication of a struggle. One by one, others who had placed items in the time capsule are murdered. Besides his suspicions about the sudden, mysterious appearance of Nikita Stover, the chief investigator, Knox Davis, has absolutely no leads. And while Nikita’s no murderer, she seems to be hiding plenty of secrets. With more at stake than anyone else realizes, the smart-talking Nikita is determined to catch this cunning killer - while at the same time battling her own deepening feelings for a man and for a world in which she doesn’t belong.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 2/17/2014

    " an alright suspense, but didn't feel a connection between the two. Didn't encourage me to read it from start to finish. Slightly odd premise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Celeste | 1/19/2014

    " Loved this book! Even though I usually prefer Linda Howard's earlier works, this one combined just enough romance with suspense and mystery. Def. worth 5 stars IMO. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/13/2014

    " An intrigueing murder mystery/love story with a twist. I look forward to reading more books by Linda Howard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 1/9/2014

    " I love time travel romance! This book did not disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara M. | 1/7/2014

    " I have to say I really enjoyed this book, but it's not surprising my review goes against the grain. I found this book a fun read/a different read. I get stuck sometimes reading the same kind of books; historical romance, paranormal romance and modern romance. Killing time was a nice change of pace (a little Sci-fi) and I wasn't disappointed. I actually took some advice from another reviewer and went yesterday and bought a few of her recommended books by Howard. Thanks for the info! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Zafora | 1/6/2014

    " This book was sexy,unique and thrilling. i liked that the main characters were tough, brave and ready to take action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 12/25/2013

    " This was a pretty good read. Nikita, an FBI agent from the future travels back in time to catch a killer who is after the time capsule buried in a small town in Kentucky in 1985. Determined to find out what the killer wants with it, she must go into a hiding of sorts when she is shot at. Knox Davis, Chief County Investigator, is just the man to help keep her safe. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ginny | 12/24/2013

    " Just didn't do it for me, I am not a fan of the paranormal novels, but I do so like Linda Howard so I gave it the benefit of the doubt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqueline | 12/18/2013

    " One of my least favorite Linda Howard's. It just felt a little contrived to me and the characterizations were not as good as usual in her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Imasongbyrd | 12/15/2013

    " OMG! I loved this book! I wish there were a way to indicate in text that I am speaking really, really, really, really, really, really, fast. Paper! Paper for all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 12/7/2013

    " bit disapointed with the end as it seemed to end very quickly, i personally think there could have been much more to include "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lea-Ellen | 11/28/2013

    " TT; heroine from future comes to present time period "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 11/15/2013

    " As a devoted LH fan, this was really disappointing. Please, stick to what you know. I think I'm being generous by giving it 2 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashland1992yahoo.com | 11/5/2013

    " The book combined suspense and romance which was very entertaining "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meigan | 11/5/2013

    " Futuristic and weird, but made for an interesting and quick read. Not typical Linda Howard and not my fave, but liked it nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tera | 11/5/2013

    " It was not like her other books I have read. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 10/8/2013

    " Not really a book of my interest. Thought it would be more murder mystery and I'm just not interested in time travel so wasn't for me. Some interesting parts but not enough to finish it. Like the simple murder / love story better. JMO. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicola Byrne | 9/11/2013

    " I thought this was a real different style for LH. The mention of time travel almost had me thinking twice about reading it. I have never been disappointed in LH books though and I certainly was not here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nilu | 9/8/2013

    " Linda Howard knows exactly how to blend romance with suspense and thriller elements. Add to that a high hokey 'Time Travel' plot and the end product is pure escapism entertainment. Just the thing to relieve stress and feel good after reading.It's not literature but it's a good read ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dewi hawati | 2/27/2013

    " gak nyangka kertas akan menjadi barang paling mahal 200 tahun yang akan datang "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 2/16/2013

    " Maybe not a book I'll remember in 6 months time but a nice steady read nonetheless. Linda Howard writes like someone who knows what they're doing and it's evident that she's been studying the craft for a while. A solid book from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 2/10/2013

    " I loved this book. At first I didn't know if I would enjoy a sci- fi, but I was wrong. This was a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara L | 1/17/2013

    " Definately not one of her best...but still entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 11/5/2012

    " I really liked the characters in the book but the story was just OK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine St. Vincent | 10/15/2012

    " Bagussss......much better than Kill and Tell!!! Funny and imagining... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mical | 7/29/2012

    " Hey, It's Linda Howard! You can't miss. Good afternoon or evening entertainment. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Radziah | 7/25/2012

    " I read it bcoz of the author - what a disappointment! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene Wilson | 6/6/2012

    " Nice light reading -- time travel this time from Linda Howard -- very enjoyable! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheena | 3/17/2012

    " Definitely a beach read. Dealt with time travel, which I think is very hard to pull off, and I don't think the author succeeded. It certainly fits the mold of a typical mystery/romance. (Or as I imagine the mold to be, since, I admit, I don't read much of that genre!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clare | 7/19/2011

    " Took me a long time to get through this book, but I have to say it was completely different from her other books. Just a shame it was a bit slow. Still interesting though "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annamaria | 3/18/2011

    " i love sci-fi
    this one of great sci-fi story..
    futuristic but not too many science vocab
    i enjoy it much "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MRS | 3/17/2011

    " I'm sure there are holes all through this story but I didn't catch many...I was too busy enjoying it! I liked the way the author recognizes that in the future some things probably won't be radically different because some things from our time just "work." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 2/11/2011

    " This was really pretty good. L.H. put in new details for a time travel romance with danger added in. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Caitlyn | 2/11/2011

    " I tried so hard to like this story, but I couldn't get passed page 100. I didn't care for the hero or the heroine and for me the story and the telling of it weren't compelling enough to make me want to finish the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqueline | 12/6/2010

    " One of my least favorite Linda Howard's. It just felt a little contrived to me and the characterizations were not as good as usual in her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ?, ? ? ? ? ? ??? | 11/10/2010

    " Ini sepertinya Linda Howard kesukaanku, karena agak-agak beda
    ada bau2 sci-fi *bau doang, jangan protes*
    soalnya polisinya datang dari masa depan, jadi berasa seru aja =))
    "
