LoveReading View on Killing Time

A detective come science fiction story; a lost time capsule, a handsome law officer, visitors from the future, some murders, a delectable female and a fascinating, bubbly romp.  Great fun.

Killing Time Synopsis

In 1985, a time capsule was buried in the front lawn of a small town courthouse, to be reopened in 2085. But just twenty years later, in the middle of the night, the capsule is dug up and its contents stolen. And that same night, one of the contributors to the capsule is brutally slain in his home - with no sign of forced entry or indication of a struggle. One by one, the other time capsule contributors are also being targeted.

Other than the sudden, mysterious appearance of the intriguing Nikita Stover, the local police have absolutely no leads. And while Nikita is not a killer, she does have secrets to hide. With more at stake than anyone else realises, the smart-talking Nikita is determined to catch this cunning murderer...while at the same time battling her own deepening feelings for a man and a world in which she doesn't belong.

Killing Time Press Reviews

‘You can always count on three things with a Linda Howard book: suspense that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat; an alpha male hero to die for; and super-steamy sex.’ Bella
