Book Review: Nick of Time

Book: Nick Of Time
Author: Tim Downs
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Pages: 336

I have come to a conclusion, Tim Downs is my favorite author.

Nick of Time is the most recent novel by Downs, and it is a doozy. Continuing in the travels, exploits, and adventures, is no other than Nick Polchak. Our beloved forensic entomologist is once again in the middle of trouble, and in this story, love. A former co-star appears again in this novel, and she is one to be reckoned with.

Tim Downs is top dog author in my book because of the way he weaves suspense, forensics, and comedy into one grand tale, and boy is this one grand! The turns in this one bowled me over and the huge plot twist at the end...never saw it coming!

If you are new to Tim Downs' offerings, I would recommend all of his books (starting with Shoofly Pie). If you want to jump in with the current story arc, check out "Less than Dead", "Ends of the Earth", and then "Nick of Time."

Although this is from a Christian publisher house, this is not a "Christian" book per se, where Christ is preached blatantly throughout, it remains "clean," with no foul language, or sexual overtones. There are several positive characters that speak great truth into the lives of the characters.

5 / 5 Stars
