Nick Quinn is being held in jail, accused of his wife Julia’s murder. He knows she’s dead; he saw her bloody corpse. But he’s innocent.

  

At 9 p.m. on July 28, a gray-haired gentleman gives Nick a talisman, allowing him to go back in time, one hour at a time, for a total of twelve hours. With each hour that Nick travels, he finds more clues to the identity of Julia’s real killer, but he also discovers that his actions in the past may have unexpected repercussions in the future. If he hasn’t set things right by the thirteenth hour, all will be lost and all his good intentions of saving Julia’s life may lead to a far greater catastrophe than he could have imagined.

A surprising and utterly original thriller blending a dash of fantasy with page-turning suspense, The 13th Hour is pure entertainment—full of double-crosses, cliffhangers, and surprises.

    " Thrilling. A quick read. A man is given a chance to go back one hour at a time to find clues to prevent his wife from bring murdered. Although each decision Nick makes in each time travel affects the future and outcome, the author doesn't really go into how it is doing that. A fun paced story. I will probably try another book from this author. I could do without the language. At one point, one of the characters mocks another for the poor vocabulary he is using. I thought the author should take his own advice. "

    " This novel is a fresh addition to the Time Travel Genre. The book opens with the lead character, Nick Quinn, being interrogated by the police for the brutal murder of his wife. Quinn didn't do it, most of the police force is crooked, and involved in a multi-million dollar home invasion, and the crash of a commercial jet liner is also woven into the plot. And, next we learn that Quinn is in possession of a watch which allows him to relive the last twelve hours-running backwards, one hour at a time. He has twelve hours to change the course of history, and save his wife's life. The novel begins with Chapter 12, and finishes with Chapter 1. All kinds of possible histories are uncovered, explored, and avoided, yet no serious breaches of, "The Time Continuum Conundrum" are violated, but unfortunately, we never find out how that watch came to be. At times the book gets a bit confusing, but I guess that is the nature of these kinds of tales. According to the author's website this novel will be made into a film, and I am anxious to see if they can pull it off successfully. "

    " I really give it a 3.5 rating. The plot is interesting, but the story is a bit prolonged and could use more intrigue to spice it up. "

    " It was hard to put this book down. It was a great thriller. "
