Led on a dangerous journey that takes him away from his Chicago teaching job, he’s soon hunting through England and France for clues.

What Time Devours is a well-crafted, edge of your seat thriller. Just when you think you’ve figured out what’s coming next, the story takes a sharp turn and takes off in a new direction. From an opening that will have you keeping your windows covered come nightfall, this dark suspense will keep you guessing until the very end.
