There’s a secret in Silicon Valley. A discovery. An invention. One so startling and surprisingly sinister that it needs to be concealed—at any price.

Tim Tigner takes a step back from his bestselling Kyle Achilles series to introduce Zachary Chase and Skylar Fawkes in a fresh standalone novel that’s bound to keep you glued and guessing. With secluded meetings, sudden disappearances and strange murders; secret agents, skillful assassins and sexy locations; The Price of Time is packed with fast-paced action and first-class intellectual intrigue.

Propelling the thrills and perched at the middle of the mystery is one of humanity’s great questions: Would finding the Fountain of Youth be a blessing?

Prepare for sleep-deprived nights and skipped chores while repeating the phrase: “Just one more page.”

Would you like immortality? This novel by Tim Tigner explores this idea. Sounds great—but is it really? A small group of scientists and business people have found the secret to stopping aging, but they can die from ways other than old age.

The “Immortals” must come up with a way to change their identities after every twenty years because they cannot explain their not aging. How to do this? They cross a moral line, and it comes with a cost. Reading about their debates on how to solve this problem and others is fascinating and brings human nature to attention.

There is a mystery here as well. Someone is murdering the immortals, but why? At the same time, a former CIA agent rescues a woman from the dark plans of the immortals. They work together to try to find these people and get answers. These two storylines work together to make great suspense. There are surprises in this book, and readers are unlikely to guess the ending. The characters are well-drawn.

This is a unique story that is worth a reader’s time. I’ll be looking for more from this talented author.
