Description

Would your character change...
if you had all the money in the world?
And all the time?
Would you become a better person?
Or worse?

Imagine Agatha Christie meets Michael Crichton in a fast-paced, philosophical mystery thriller. 

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

Tim Tigner takes a step back from his best-selling Kyle Achilles series to introduce Zachary Chase and Skylar Fawkes in a fresh stand-alone novel that’s bound to keep you glued and guessing. With secret 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 minute."   

Amazon named Tim Tigner an All-Star Author in December 2017 and every month since for being one of the most popular authors in Kindle Unlimited.

Thrilling and Thought Provoking

The description say Agatha Christie meets Michael Crichton and that's surprisingly accurate. There are two interwoven storylines taking place, an Agatha Christie And Then There Were None style mystery mixed with a Crichtonesque thriller--solid cutting-edge medical science skillfully mixed with high-tension thrills.

Beginning with the author's brief note, this story has me rethinking the topic of immortality, or "halted aging" as one character called it. I like the way it stimulated my brain as well as my emotions. Few books accomplish that, entertaining while leaving you feeling like you've grown.

The narrator, who I recognize from the Dan Brown Da Vinci Code books, was a good choice for this specific genre mix. His silky voice worked well with all the mystery and intrigue and tantalizing revelation.

There are a lot of characters in this one, as necessitated by the mystery part of the plot. They're well rendered and you like both good and bad. The thriller characters are more typical Tigner, with compelling male and female leads and an antagonist you appreciate but love to hate.

My favorite part was the way the author brought the whole story full circle at the very end. A masterful finishing touch. All in all, another excellent read from one of my very favorite authors.

DIFFERENT IN A GOOD WAY!

Many dilemmas (moral, etc.) are posited given the premise of the story. A "what if..." and many of the ramifications that come with it. How far is one willing to go to maintain the status quo.

It took me a while to get acquainted with all the characters involved, but once I did and could remember who was who in the story, it was easy to follow.

I was rooting for the underdogs all the way!

Paul Michael did a great job narrating, so it was an easy and enjoyable listen.

I liked the story, and I recommend it.

Keeps you on edge of your seat

I love Tim Tigner's writing style. His plots are realistic enough to make you think, but scientific enough to make you wonder. This novel explores both. What length will humans go? The characters are woven together and it keeps you guessing for a long time. There are fast paced adventure and exciting encounters. I highly recommend finding out for yourself!!

interesting and moved along with no lulls

I thought the book and narration were both good. The first audio book I had wasn't nearly as good as this one. I like that the service is month-to-month

Good one

Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend to others. Pros: Interesting moral concept coupled with action-packed ride following interesting characters. Cons: I got lost and frustrated about ten chapters in when they introduced the other characters...couldn't figure out what was going on...thought I had accidentally put my device on shuffle or something. But once I figured out what was going on I liked it.

Interesting conundrum but story not well sold

Look, this book will leave you with ideas. I don't want to give anything away, so it's a bit hard to write about why this isn't a 5 star event. Motivation for the principle actors isn't satisfying - to say the least. However the clever challenge that they create for themselves is well presented.

Don't know if I'll read another Tim Tigner novel, but if you come away from The Price of Time with DEEEEP reflexions as I have, well I'm sure not going to warn anyone away.

What a let down!

Whoever wrote the description for this book deserves 5 stars—

With such an interesting initial idea, the discovery of an immortality therapy, the book could have explored topics of medical ethics, philosophy, religion, politics, wealth and poverty. But it just devolved into kind of a torturous, run of the mill and pretty implausible, detective novel.

Save your credit...
