Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Time Thriller Trilogy delivers gripping, fast-paced mystery that intrigues and captivates through hours, seconds, and centuries. A long history of strange disappearances and unexplainable occurrences leave clues that the town of Fawlt Line may actually sit on a time fault---a portal to alternate times and unexpected time travels---a twist of fate that puts all of Fawlt Line's citizens in serious danger. Will they find the faith to hold on to the town and time where they belong? Can truth prevail? Elizabeth thought volunteering at the Fawlt Line Retirement Center would be fun, but she quickly has second thoughts. While most of the residents are wonderful, there's something about the place---and a strangely familiar man in a wheelchair---that gives her the creeps. When people start disappearing from the center, leaving behind cryptic notes, Elizabeth is convinced the time fault is involved. Her own time-travel adventure may be the key to solving the mystery, but can she convince the sheriff she's telling the truth before more people disappear? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

On a par with the first one in the trilogy. Still has all the suspense and drama etc of the first, but it lacked the message of the second. Still a good read. Made me want more of his books

Format: Paperback
This book was originally published in 1996 by Chariot Victor Publishing under the same title. It is book 3 in the Time Thrillers (current series name) or Time Twists (original series name) series. The town Elizabeth, Jeff and Malcom are from is right on a fault line and people randomly disappear only to show up again claiming to be someone else. They have a "time twin" and when they wind up in those fault lines, they switch places with their "time twin". In this book, Elizabeth, who has experienced this, is terrified of going back to the wrong time again. A resident at the retirement center is still in his incorrect place in time - having switched thirty years ago and never gotten back. The lesson is that God has everything under control and nothing happens without a purpose. Because of that we don't have to give in to fear. The focus isn't on the lesson though. It reads like an adventure story with a fantasy/sci-fi element thrown in. The focus is on the continuous action.

Romans 8:38-39 - For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Format: Paperback
Elizabeth Forde is on her first day at the Fawlt Line Retirement Center, kicking herself for volunteering to work there. For some reason, she finds the place overwhelming. Until she meets Frieda Schultz, a cheerful and friendly resident. If for Frieda alone, Elizabeth decides to stick it out for a few days before she makes a final decision.

But Mr. Betterman, a creepy guy in an electric wheelchair, haunts Elizabeth's nightmares, calling her Sarah, the name of her time twin from the other world. And when Frieda has a heart attack, Elizabeth can't help but wonder if Mr. Betterman was responsible in some way. Is Mr. Betterman from the other world? If so, what is he up to?

I haven't read the first two books in this series and didn't realize it was a book three until I started reading it. The story was enjoyable. There was a lot of backstory to help me understand things I missed not having read the first two books. Sometimes that was helpful, sometimes it felt like I didn't need to know it all. I liked the mystery in the story. The characters weren't as deep as I like, but this was only a two hundred-page book, so that's probably part of the reason. The premise is intriguing. I would have liked to have read the first two before reviewing the third.

Format: Paperback
This book is not as good as the first two in the series, but it is still a good book. The first two deal with things that are very paranormal, whereas this one seems to be more founded in reality. That said the book still contains a few of the themes a reader has come to expect fron the Time Twist series.
