What If... I could give this book review more stars? I’d do it in a New York minute! Because that is the premise of this cautionary tale.
This book is a change of pace for Tim Tigner. Instead of a hero trying to prevent random acts of terror or evil conspiracies, it’s a smart thriller that also explores issues of morality and ethics in a world of rapidly developing technologies. The main concept asks the questions: What if you could change your life forever? How far would you go the achieve immortality?
The Price of Time revolves around a small group of corporate bigwigs who are keeping a major medical breakthrough to themselves. In a twist of fate, former CIA agent Zachary Chase inadvertently becomes a threat to the group’s secret while investigating the disappearance of his college roommate, Lars.
Chase has no idea who is after him or why. All he knows is that the
trouble started after Lars vanished. Using his CIA experience and
contacts and the help of a woman he rescues while retracing Lars’ last known location, Chase closes in on the truth about Lars and his connection to the secret.
Chase’s investigation alternates with the actions of the mysterious group to reach their objectives while keeping Chase at bay. What makes this thriller different is that the group is not inherently evil or a danger to society as a whole, but the steps they take to protect their secret are somewhat extreme. The action is full of surprising twists (especially the stunning finale). Again, Tim Tigner gives the reader an amazing thriller that will have you thinking about it days later. He is a true literary master who never disappoints his readers
