A Mesmerizing Thriller Told in Reverse
(Yep, you start at the last chapter and go backwards)

Richard Doetsch returns with a stand-alone sequel to his international bestseller, The 13th Hour, published in twenty-two countries.

“At long last, Richard Doetsch returns to the clock-spinning world of THE 13TH HOUR. Its ingenious sequel, THE 13TH HOUR: CHAOS, is a jigsaw puzzle in book form—but that’s not all. It’s a love story, a political potboiler, and a thriller that upends expectations with every turn of the page. It carried me from heartbreaking opening to the razor edge of its ending in one sitting. My foot is already tapping as I wait impatiently for a third installment!”

James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestseller of The Last Odyssey

The 13th Hour by Richard Doetsch
Not at all! Very different, new direction, really cool twists, the same husband and wife. I can't really say much without spoiling things, though I can assure you, if you enjoyed the first one, this one ramps things up while keeping it extremely hear See Full Answer

Quotes by Richard Doetsch  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“but true love goes far deeper than that. It is an unexplainable connection of the heart, one that endures triumph and tragedy, pain and suffering, obstacles and loss. It is something that is either present or missing - there is no "almost", "in between", "most of the time." It is the unexplainable reason that some marriages entered into after one-week courtships can last a lifetime. Its absence is why "perfect" marriages fall apart. It can't be quantified or explained in science, religion, or philosophy. It can't be advised on by friends or marriage counselors who can't take their own advice. There are no rules, no how-to books, no guaranteed methods of success. It is not defined by vows or rings or promises of tomorrow. It is simply a miracle of God, that too few are blessed to experience.”
Richard Doetsch, The Thieves Of Darkness

“How many people live in the moment? A few? How many people live for tomorrow at the sacrifice of today?" Dreyfus opened his fist to reveal it to be empty. "...When tomorrow is never a guarantee.”
Richard Doetsch, The 13th Hour

“We need something to believe in. Doesn't matter what. God, Buddha, Elvis. We all need faith. That's what gives us hope, hope there's something better out there, something to strive for. Hope is what drives you. Hope gets you out of bed, hoping you're going to make that big sale at work, hoping you get to make love to your wife at night. - Paul Busch”
Richard Doetsch, The Thieves Of Heaven
