Victor Abbott is seeking an alibi for a murder it seems only he could have committed…
A man is deal: his rival in love, shot expertly with a bullet that also appears to give the exact time of the murder: 8.59.
But is this the time the murder was committed, or is Victor being set up…?
Matters are further confused with the discovery of another murder, miles apart at the end of an hour’s drive, but carried out with the same revolver within minutes of the other crime.
Is it even possible for both homicides to have been perpetrated by the same person?
Because that’s exactly what the evidence points to…
It seems David Mallin and George Coe, never averse to a little blackmail, will have to employ all the unorthodox methods in their arsenal.

One Deathless Hour is a fast-paced, layered tale which reveals that sometimes, it’s all a question of timing…
