Description

A locked-room murder mystery set at a hotel for time travelers--in which a detective must solve an impossible crime even as her own sanity crumbles--from the author of The Warehouse

For someone with January Cole's background, running security at a fancy hotel shouldn't be much of a challenge.

Except the Paradox is no ordinary hotel. Here, the ultra-wealthy guests are costumed for a dozen different time periods, all anxiously waiting to catch their "flights" to the past. And proximity to the timeport makes for an interesting stay. The clocks run backward on occasion--and, rumor has it, ghosts stroll the halls.

Now, January's job is about to get a whole lot harder. Because the U.S. government is getting ready to privatize time-travel technology--and a handful of trillionaires have just arrived to put down their bids.

And there's a murderer on the loose.

Or at least that's what January suspects. Except the corpse in question is one that somehow only she can see. And the accidents stalking their prestigious guests . . . well, the only way a killer could engineer those is by operating invisibly and in plain sight, all at once. Which is surely impossible.

There's a reason January can glimpse what others can't. But her ability is also destroying her grip on reality--and forcing her to confront secrets of her own.

Because here at the Paradox Hotel, the past is waiting around every corner.

At once a dazzlingly time-twisting murder mystery and a story about grief, memory, and what it means to--literally--come face-to-face with our ghosts, The Paradox Hotel is another unforgettable speculative thrill ride from acclaimed author Rob Hart.
