    1. Can history be changed Is it possible for a man who has lost all motivation for life to find renewed purpose when a young woman s desperate screams for help set off an unbelievable chain of events that leave no evidence Daniel is recently widowed, lost in his grief time has no real meaning for him any Alone in an isolated area, terrifying events repeat themselves, each time with a slight change, each time real than the last, but no evidence is left behind Is he losing his mind Killing Time by J [...]

    2. Daniel Nash, recently widowed, buys a house to renovate in the Louisiana Bayou A murder of an 18 year old girl is tied into the house and Daniel must uncover the mystery and keep his sanity in tact Think this would have been stronger as a short story A simplistic and somewhat cliched story that drags I enjoyed Penney s other book, Truck Stop, much On a positive note, Penney is a very cinematic writer, he is good at painting scenes with a minimum of description Quick research turned up that he i [...]

    3. The book s about a man who is living a bit detached from the world Only doing his job as a carpenter keeps him grounded He takes a job remodeling an abandoned house and stumbles upon a mystery view spoiler John is able to slip time and goes back to the year of the murder hide spoiler I couldn t put the book down, but I think the story missed a whole direction it could of added with the butterfly effect.

    4. Fans of his Truck Stop may find this one a bit disappointing What gets off to a good start goes awry with a halfhearted time travel story That in of itself would not be so bad, if it were not poorly executed.If you never read anything by the author, read Truck Stop I do look forward to new material from this author, Killing Time was not it.

    5. Great twistgood story line and good twists at the end good reading flow that made for a quick read would recommend to those that enjoy a good thriller and want something with a bunch of twisty turns.

    6. Daniel is looking for a reason to live Lost after the death of his wife he feels like he has no purpose He has started a renovation on an old house and strange things begin to happen Has he finally lost his mind or is something else going on.

    7. This is another great, easy read from John Penney It is well written and well edited, and very enjoyable to read.
