The 13th Hour
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.
