Cancer. Undetected, it relentlessly devours its host until there is nothing left. Andrew Acheson's grandfather has been searching for a cure since a rare blood born pathogen claimed the life of his beloved wife.
Family. If damaged, it can be the breeding ground for social disease. Greed infected the Acheson clan long ago. David Acheson, the patriarch, has been missing for over a year and is presumed to be dead. Murdered? Kidnapped? The FBI has no leads. David's heirs can't wait to get their filthy fingers on his pharmaceutical empire.
Discovery. If misunderstood, it has the power to destroy. Andrew desires the success and love that have painfully eluded him. Without his grandfather's guidance, he may never find it. Suddenly thrust into the center of a conflict with historic consequences, Andrew might be able to survive if he can overcome his flaws, both inherited and self-inflicted. But first, he must find his grandfather and deal with David's most dangerous invention yet: time travel.
Time's Alibi is a complex story swirling around history, science, greed, and family. There is so much happening in this book, but the author smoothly ties it all together. Readers are quickly introduced to a mystery surrounding the disappearance of Andrew's grandfather. I was completely surprised by his whereabouts and condition. I won't spoil that for you.
This novel makes you think and I appreciate that. You wonder about the secrets of the world that are happening without our knowledge and how they ultimately impact the state of our planet and all the living things that call it home. And time travel - this book has time travel!
