Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
It's the Fourth of July in Nick Quinn's sleepy New York village when a cataclysmic terror attack kills his wife, daughter, and hundreds of his fellow townspeople. Devastated and reeling, Nick is approached by one of his oldest friends, gunshot and dying, who hands him an antique pocket watch that he claims can save them all. Nick uses the ancient watch as instructed and is shocked to find himself propelled back one hour before the mass tragedy has occurred. But there's a twist: At the top of each hour, the watch will hurl Nick back two hours to relive each hour of his day anew. A desperate backward race through his day. Limited by time, Nick works feverishly to protect his family and learn the source of the mass killing. But each time Nick travels back, he discovers new angles behind the deadly plot. Enemies become allies and friends turn to foes as he unearths layer after layer of treachery. As the hours dwindle, Nick learns that there's a bigger game afoot: a second threat even more astounding than the first, which, unless he can stop it, will destroy the global order of power as we know it.

    *Starred Review* Staring at the glass of the interrogation room, Nick Quinn realizes he has been accused of murdering his wife a couple of hours earlier. She was the love of his life, and he cannot convince the police officers of his innocence. During a break in the questioning, a man appears and offers Quinn a watch. This amazing device will enable Quinn to travel backward one hour at a time to save his wife's life and bring the true killer to justice. As he uses the timepiece and works toward his ultimate goal, Quinn learns to his horror that changing the past has terrifying ramifications and that he could make things even worse than they were before the day began. Starting with chapter 12 and working backward, Doetsch spins a compelling tale of loss, grief, and injustice with an element of fantasy. As the events unfold in Quinn's quest, the shocks and twists are uniquely affecting, as the reader technically knows what's going to happen. If there ever was a novel that deserves to be read in one sitting, this is it. With a totally original and compelling story line, The 13th Hour is one of the best thrillers of the year.
