MYSTERY - ADVENTURE - MINOR HEROICS
"Thrilling and suspenseful... The plot's clever twists and turns create a web of intrigue that had me glued to the pages until I reached the exciting finale." - Reader's Favorite, 5/5 stars
Twin revelations upend sixteen-year-old Santa Monica native Jasper Faulks' near-normie existence after Dad disappears on the second anniversary of Mom's death: Dad used to be a member of a secret society of time benders, and Jasper himself inherited the talent.
His new power to operate at staggering pace puts him in the crosshairs of the equally skilled magnate who snatched his father. Brave but ultimately doomed, Jasper's solo effort to rescue Dad goes awry, and he awakens shackled and primed for nefarious medical procedures.
Okay, so he's no superhero. Bummer. At least he made some friends along the way. How else could he hope to stop time long enough to free himself, save Dad, and escape a collapsing underground lair in the Swiss Alps? He'll need to find some pants first, though. After all, nobody has ever successfully escaped from anywhere in an open-back hospital gown.
