Publisher Description

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.

"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!"

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

  • Overall Performance: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " 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. "

  • Overall Performance: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " 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 ;) "

    " 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. "

    " 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!) "

    " 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." "
