Review - What Time Devours by A. J. Hartley

What Time Devours
A. J. Hartley
January 6, 2009
ISBN# 978-0-425-22623-0

Book Blurb:
A dead woman. A literary treasure. A dangerous quest.Thomas Knight, the protagonist from On the Fifth Day, returns and is faced with a centuries-old mystery surrounding a long-lost-and now priceless-Shakespearean play. To find it, Thomas will have to enter a story which drags loss and death after it like one of Shakespeare's tragedies, a story bound to time and all it devours.

My thoughts:
Following the appearance of a dead woman pressed-up against his window, Thomas Knight finds himself caught in a chain of events that send him searching for a lost play said to be written by Shakespeare. Led on a dangerous journey that takes him away from his Chicago teaching job, he’s soon hunting through England and France for clues. Thomas isn’t the only one looking for this priceless treasure, and the others have no intention of allowing him to walk away with the prize.

What Time Devours features Thomas Knight from the author’s previous release, On the Fifth Day. Mr. Hartley takes readers on a danger filled quest to solve a mystery that began centuries before Thomas Knight is thrust into the middle of it all. 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.
