The 13th Hour

Richard Doetsch

Nicholas Quinn is in police custody, suspected of murdering his beautiful wife, Julia, at their house in upscale Byram Hills, N.Y. While he is left alone for a moment, a stranger gives Nick a watch that allows him to journey into the past, one hour at a time, for 12 hours. Thus begins a thriller told backwards, hour-by-hour as Nick tries to prevent his wife’s murder.  The story is clever, rather than confusing, as the tension builds leading to the 13th hour, when all comes together in an exciting conclusion.
