ABOUT THE BOOK


The One Rule Is, Don’t Mess With The Past.

But he did, and now ex-detective Rembrandt Stone is reaping the devastation of ignoring those words when he traveled back in time to solve the one case that had haunted his dreams.

Yes, he solved the crime. Yes, he saved lives. But Rembrandt returns to find the unthinkable has happened and his life has shattered.

There’s only one answer: break the rule again. Go back in time once more, fix what went wrong, save what went right, and yeah, in his spare time solve another brutal crime.

But it’s not so easy to change time, especially when time turns you into a target. And of course there’s the strong possibility if he goes again, he’ll never get back.

Get ready for your mind to be blown in Book 2 of the time-travel suspense series, The True Lies of Rembrandt Stone.

Publisher: TriStone Media

EXCERPT

The 1930 Tudor home of watchmaker Arthur Fox is still standing, a couple blocks west of Water street in Stillwater, and I pause at the corner, just taking in the changes.

The first time I saw it, it had a vintage Japanese Maple, in bloom, in the front yard and Hosta that lined the walk. Aged but still stately, a little like its owner, Art, who refused to let me in and told me only that my broken watch was clearly working.

Clearly. Because I saw him again twenty years earlier, and the next day, when said watch began to tick. Art still wasn’t the warmest coat in the closet, but I met his wife, Sheila, who turned out to be a real peach and offered me lemonade without enough sweetener in it.

That time, Art left me with the same cryptic words from the back of the watch, Be Stalwart.

I remember the lemonade as I stare at the house and the addition of a wheelchair ramp at the front steps.
The fist is back in my stomach as I approach.

The air is still, cicadas buzzing as if in warning. A shift of the wind reaps the fragrance of hydrangeas nearby.

I ring the bell.

It bellows deep in the house, something mournful and appropriate. The inner door opens and the bars on the outer door dissect a woman’s body. “Can I help you?”

She’s in her mid-twenties, maybe, with blonde hair, cut short, and kind eyes. She’s wearing a pair of yoga pants and a tee-shirt, her feet bare.

I’m jarred, and for a second, I lose my words. Maybe Art doesn’t live here—

“Meggie, who is it?”

The voice is gnarled, crabby and I’m so relieved I even smile. “I’m looking for Arthur Fox.”

She considers me. “Why?”

“I need to talk to him about my broken watch.”

“Dad doesn’t fix watches anymore.” She cocks her head, folding her arms over her chest.

“He’ll fix mine.” I don’t mean to be rude, but really, this is between Art and me. And father time, apparently.

“I highly doubt that” Meggie says.

“Meggie, who is it?”

“Some guy who wants you to fix his watch—”

“Be Stalwart. Tell him that.”

She rolls her eyes and leaves, shutting the door.

Huh. Like father like daughter, because I’m standing on the stoop without a clue what to do.

I’m about to knock again when the door reopens. “He remembers you. You can talk to him, but not for long. He’s tired.”
 
He didn’t sound tired when he was shouting at her from across the house, but I bite my tongue and head inside.
