Series: Time Thriller Trilogy
The story centers on a sixteen-year-old teenager, Elizabeth Forde, who volunteers at the Fawlt Line Retirement Center and almost immediately becomes involved in the mysterious disappearances and deaths of some of the residents. She meets Doug Hall, the handsome maintenance man, Adam Hounslow, the uncooperative father of the towns sheriff (Richard Hounslow) and George Betterman, a gray-bearded man in a wheelchair who says little to anyone.
In a museum built by one Malcolm Dubbs, called the Historical Village, Adam disappears, sending the staff and his son the sheriff into a panic. Thus starts the search and subsequent disappearances of other residents and even some of their belongings. Elizabeth and her boyfriend, Jeff, become civilian sleuths in trying to solve the mystery. In doing so, Elizabeth almost loses her life in a fire but is rescued by a surprising figure, which later puts the entire adventure into a conclusion that satisfies both the characters in the story as well as the reader.
This is a mildly interesting, fast-paced book that borders on fantasy, as the subject of time travel is referred to over and over. Also, there are references to characters and plots from the previous two books, which made it at times confusing (if the other two havent been read previously). The style is simple and straight-forward, and character development in minimal, given the books brevity. There are very few religious references, making more of a general market, rather than Christian book. For an afternoon of light reading, this book will do the job.
