A real page turner start to finish, Out of Time satisfies on so many levels. Insightful characterizations, a wealth of knowledge about all things scientific and military, and an insiders knowledge of the area around Twisp and Winthrop, combine to make the the story come alive and leap off the page at you. Whilst initially struggling with any violence in the earlier Jim Johnson novels, like Heather, one of the characters in the book, I found myself starting to understand that these ‘not very nice’ characters do exist in the world, and that this necessitates the response of heroes such as Jim, Brush, Will, Glenda et al. Having devoured this book at lightning speed, I am now eagerly awaiting my next adrenalin dose from the Perry’s pen. What will the next episode bring? I can’t wait!
