Description

Time calls the shots.

Unwitting time traveler Joseph Bridgeman is adjusting to life in the present and wondering if his traveling days are behind him. But when he’s contacted by The Continuum, an organized group of time travelers based in the future, he learns his career is just getting started.


The Continuum needs Joe’s help. One of their operatives is missing, last seen in nineteenth-century Paris and they believe Joe’s ability to see the past might be the only way to find him. Teamed up with Gabrielle Green, an acerbic, wisecracking traveler, Joe heads back to 1873 on his most dangerous mission yet, one that will take him deep inside a burning opera house.


But how will Joe succeed when his new companion clearly hates his guts, the missing traveler disappears the second anyone sets eyes on him, and a familiar foe threatens to trap them in the past for good? With help on hand from his best friend, Vinny, and mysterious clues hidden in his sister Amy’s paintings, Joe must hone his gift, develop new skills, and figure out a way to complete his mission before the blazing inferno comes crashing down around them all.

Time calls the shots.

Featured Reviews

Thanks again to NetGalley for an electronic advanced readers copy of this book. I really enjoyed this book, even though it is the 3rd one in the series and I didn't read the first two. It reminded me of James Rollins' "Sigma Force" series except instead of super smart secret agents this book focused on time travelers. Nick Jones did a great job of reintroducing key characters and their relationships for new readers without making what I would think is tiresome for established readers. The plot was very interesting and I really enjoyed the different dynamics between characters like Joe and Gabrielle. Definitely want to check out the rest of this series.

This is another great addition to this series. I love the idea of time travel and that time nudges folks to fix things in the past that shouldn’t have happened. Hope this is a long series.
