"A Bite Out of Time" is an exceptionally Twilight Zone-ish story in which everything you don't expect to happen does--but more importantly, what you couldn't possibly expect, comes to pass. Like the author's story "Atonement," "A Bite Out of Time" is a "Twisted Tale from the Files of the Second Chance Limousine Service." Oh, boy--Second Chance Limo is definitely something else, and distinctly as it title promises and promulgates: "Second Chance." Second Chance for what, you ask? Well, in the case of rock musician Vince, it's New Year's Eve 1968 turning into New Year's Day 1969--and he's very much missing girlfriend Randessa, a Peace Corps volunteer, until a hot young woman approaches him--and bites his neck. A century later, Vince will encounter the Second Chance Limousine Service--and this time around, everything's going to change for him--yet again.
My favorite aspect of the story is the limousine service. I don't want to say too much and give away the story, but what a cool, slick concept it is. It really got me thinking if such a thing existed, what, if anything, would I want to do with it? Does fate exist? Are certain outcomes inescapable? I love stories that have a powerful hook like that, that get you looking inwards, imagining possibilities for your own life. Clever storytelling!
At the end of the story is an introduction to the author's novel The Ezekiel Code - which is truly an unforgettable read. I loved it.
For a mere $0.99, A Bite Out of Time provides you with more than a bite of great entertainment. I'd read a longer version of it in a heartbeat.

That said, this was a really neat short story that was fun to read, and sure can pass the time in a waiting room.
Tenuta seems to have a lot of fun with this story, and it makes for a great read.
I see where he's got another in the Second Chance Limo series, and you can cool believe I am going from here to there to download it. :)
If you download this story, I'm sure you won't be sorry.
