really liked it

I think all of us would like the ability to change something that has happened in our past. Nick Quinn gets that chance.

Nick and his wife, Julia, both have good jobs and are happily married. They have been saving and planning for the time that they can have children and start being a family.

All of these hopes and dreams come crashing down around them when Nick finds Julia murdered in their home.

At 9 pm on July 28th, a gray-haired gentleman gives Nick a talisman that will allow him to go back in time to see if he can find Julia's murderer and see if he can reverse or change the past. He will be allowed to go back in time one hour at a time, for a total of twelve hours. He must accomplish his task by this time or all will be lost.

Nick must also be careful in that what he changes in the past might not resultin what he is attempting to do. It is possible that a change could result in a more serious outcome.

Nick, in the past, is confronted by burglars who have robbed one of his wife's wealthy clients. Their take consists of priceless antique weapons. However, one of the thieves has taken possession of a box that is beyond priceless. Since there is no honor among thieves, a struggle ensues that may give Nick the possibility of saving Julia.

Remember, he must be careful of any changes he makes because it is possible that those changes may lead to other unwanted events.

"The 13th Hour" is a great read for the mystery fan, and will also please those of you who like science fiction/fantasy. A great read that will have you going back to Doetsch's first two books, "The Thieves of Heaven" and "The Thieves of Faith".
