Publisher's Summary

Would your character change...
if you had all the money in the world?
And all the time?
Would you become a better person?
Or worse?

Imagine Agatha Christie meets Michael Crichton in a fast-paced, philosophical mystery thriller. 

There’s a secret in Silicon Valley. A discovery. An invention. One so startling and surprisingly sinister that it needs to be kept - at any price.    

Tim Tigner takes a step back from his best-selling Kyle Achilles series to introduce Zachary Chase and Skylar Fawkes in a fresh stand-alone novel that’s bound to keep you glued and guessing. With secret meetings, sudden disappearances and strange murders, secret agents, skillful assassins, and sexy locations, The Price of Time is packed with fast-paced action and first-class intellectual intrigue.    

Propelling the thrills and perched at the middle of the mystery is one of humanity’s great questions: Would finding the Fountain of Youth be a blessing?    

Prepare for sleep-deprived nights and skipped chores while repeating the phrase: "Just one more minute."   

Amazon named Tim Tigner an All-Star Author in December 2017 and every month since for being one of the most popular authors in Kindle Unlimited.

Thrilling and Thought Provoking

The description say Agatha Christie meets Michael Crichton and that's surprisingly accurate. There are two interwoven storylines taking place, an Agatha Christie And Then There Were None style mystery mixed with a Crichtonesque thriller--solid cutting-edge medical science skillfully mixed with high-tension thrills.

Beginning with the author's brief note, this story has me rethinking the topic of immortality, or "halted aging" as one character called it. I like the way it stimulated my brain as well as my emotions. Few books accomplish that, entertaining while leaving you feeling like you've grown.

The narrator, who I recognize from the Dan Brown Da Vinci Code books, was a good choice for this specific genre mix. His silky voice worked well with all the mystery and intrigue and tantalizing revelation.

There are a lot of characters in this one, as necessitated by the mystery part of the plot. They're well rendered and you like both good and bad. The thriller characters are more typical Tigner, with compelling male and female leads and an antagonist you appreciate but love to hate.

My favorite part was the way the author brought the whole story full circle at the very end. A masterful finishing touch. All in all, another excellent read from one of my very favorite authors.

DIFFERENT IN A GOOD WAY!

Many dilemmas (moral, etc.) are posited given the premise of the story. A "what if..." and many of the ramifications that come with it. How far is one willing to go to maintain the status quo.

It took me a while to get acquainted with all the characters involved, but once I did and could remember who was who in the story, it was easy to follow.

I was rooting for the underdogs all the way!

Paul Michael did a great job narrating, so it was an easy and enjoyable listen.

I liked the story, and I recommend it.

Amazing Narration!

After starting and stopping two books from Kindle Unlimited that totally bombed, I gave this one a try and loved it! Great action, intriguing and original plot, with some steamy romantic scenes weaved in. This was a change of pace from my normal reads but it is so well done. It kept me guessing throughout. I love how the author developed the characters and he did a great job of balancing their personalities. The “good guys” had some relatable darkness woven in and the “bad guys” were also easy to understand. You could see where everyone was coming from and relate. Great book. Highly recommend. Also, the Audible narrator was amazing. Great voice and narration. I could listen to the guy talk all day.

Keeps you on edge of your seat

I love Tim Tigner's writing style. His plots are realistic enough to make you think, but scientific enough to make you wonder. This novel explores both. What length will humans go? The characters are woven together and it keeps you guessing for a long time. There are fast paced adventure and exciting encounters. I highly recommend finding out for yourself!!

Interesting concept with some flaws

In The Price of Time, a small group of researchers plus their wealthy sponsor come upon a formula that will maintain their telomere length, thus affording them immortality. They then have to decide what to do with this discovery. Sharing it with the world would unleash global chaos, so they decide to keep it for themselves. The problem, of course, is one any vampire could relate to -- how not to attract attention over the years as everyone around them ages and they don't. Great concept, but then it goes off the rails a bit because instead of getting new identities every twenty years or so, they come up with a complicated plot that requires the hiring of a professional assassin to find a doppelganger for each of them, kill that person, and then assume that person's identity. In other words, these people decide not only to hoard immortality to themselves, but to become mass murderers as well, or at least be responsible for mass murder. To avoid spoilers, I'll just say that one of the dopplegangers fights back. The performance was pretty good - a couple of characters sound like old actors from the 1950s, but overall, I'd give this book a C+.
