Publisher's Summary

It's 1942 and talented young artist Emily Torrance is brutally murdered. Seventy-five years later, Jim Mercer, a reporter for the LA Times, covers a J. Paul Getty Museum showing of Emily's work and is smitten by her self-portrait. Eventually becoming obsessed with the slain artist, Mercer investigates her murder and discovers something the cops of 1942 missed: evidence of Emily's killer, but more - proof of time travel. Mercer will leap back through time to 1942 to save Emily Torrance, if she can be saved, because he's found proof his future self has already time-travelled.

    "one of those you can’t put it down"

    What would you be willing to do for your true love?  How far would you be willing to travel to save your true love?  James Mercer, an LA Times reporter is given a bread and butter piece to write about a murdered artist, Emily Torrance, from 1942.  Now, seventy years after her death, her work is being recognized.

    It is during his research that James falls for Emily and discovers his connection to the night she was found viciously murdered.  James must decide what he needs to discover how to travel back to that night and save his true love and prevent her death.  Can James save her and at what cost to his future?

    Richard Keith Taylor, the author, delivers a powerful tale that will hold listeners captivated.  The story line is well-developed focusing on love, murder and the cause and effect rule in the future.  Weaving his tale, Taylor plays on the emotions of his readers like a violin – never missing a beat and keeping the suspense and action moving along steadily.  His characters are well-developed and realistic.  The plot twists are well delivered and timely.

    The narrator, Paul Heitsch performed the audio book professionally drawing the listener in with his talented skills of giving each character a voice.  The narration appeared to be natural and realistic.  Heitsch is definitely a “thriller” type narrator.  Excellently done, I hope to hear more works by him.

    I enjoyed this thriller very much and listened to it practically non-stop.  It’s one of those you can’t put it down or you will miss something.  Definitely edge of your seat thriller!

    I did not experience any difficulties with the audio production or quality of this audiobook.
