Hey blog readers, don’t forget to turn back your clocks this Sunday, Nov. 6. Ah, that extra hour of sleep! It almost makes that 5 p.m. sunset worth it. Well, almost.
But since we’ve got clocks on the brain this weekend, I figured it was a great time to share a little bit about Time, by Roger Reid (NewSouth Books).
Jason has nearly lost his life twice solving crimes in Alabama, but he can’t turn down an invitation to return to the state for an archeological dig at the historic Stephen C. Minkin Paleozoic Footprint Site. Unfortunately, it turns out to be the same weekend that the criminal Jason put in jail in a previous adventure, Carl Morris, escapes from prison – and it’s a sure bet Carl’s going to be hunting for Jason.
Accompanied by his friend, Leah, Jason discovers that all is not science as usual at the excavation location, where someone has been stealing fossils. Even if Jason can catch the culprit, he still has Carl Morris to worry about – not to mention the question of whether he and Leah are “just friends,” or something more.
Time is a fast-moving story that incorporates factual information about geology and paleontology into its intriguing tale of suspicion, pursuit, and revenge.
Roger Reid is a writer, director, and producer for the award-winning Discover Alabama television series, a program of The University of Alabama’s Alabama Museum of Natural History in cooperation with Alabama Public Television. Learn more about him at his website.
