Book Notices | Time Frame by Douglas E. Richards

Douglas E. Richards, Time Frame

  Amazon  

Not too long ago, I accidentally reread a book I'd read and reviewed already in 2016, Douglas E. Richards' time travel novel Split Second. It wasn't until I was halfway through that things started to seem familiar, and I finished the book again anyway because I couldn't remember what happened. I had a similar reaction to the book as I did the first time through. (My consistency was heartening.) And this time, too, I said to myself, yeah, I'd read another book by this author. Turns out, the sequel to Split Second was published in 2018. I figured if I didn't read it now, I never would. So I did.

Time Frame follows the characters from the first book as they attempt to use time travel for good (to assassinate North Korea's Kim Jong Un) and prevent nefarious forces from using it for world domination. I'm not going to give away the cool time travel twist that informs much of the plot of both books, so I can't say a lot. But Time Frame, like its predecessor, is a fun read with characters I was happy to spend time with.
