Twenty years ago a time capsule was buried in the front lawn of a small town courthouse in Kentucky. It was supposed to be reopened in 2085 but someone’s dug it up early and stolen it. The strange thing is there is no evidence at the scene of how it was removed or who took it and that has frustrated county investigator Knox Davis. No leads, no suspects, no evidence besides a hole in the ground. Add to that contributors to the time capsule are dying and Knox has a mystery on his hands. When attractive FBI special agent Nikita Stover suddenly shows up in town, Knox’s nose for a mystery – and other parts – sit up and take notice. But Nikita is hiding something big; she may not be a killer but she certainly has secrets.


However, there is far more at stake than Knox knows and Nikita is the only person who has a chance of catching this killer and preventing events that will change her world. All she has to do is enlist Knox’s help and keep a time traveling killer from adding her to his list. No problem. But when she falls for Knox time starts to run out.


In Killing Time best-selling author Linda Howard takes readers back to the world of the supernatural in this story of time-travel, murder and love. With her typically dynamic characters, passionate love scenes and intensely engaging plots, Ms. Howard is sure to satisfy even the most critical of her fans. A true gem of a read!
