Original Title: And The Tide TurnsA mission meant to inspire hope ... and nothing is quite as it seems. When a seemingly unstoppable evil descends upon the city, Ethan Tannor must race against time to save a desperate world that may fall to ruin. April 1986. The Cold War is nearly over. Or is it? Wealthy business mogul Tobias Keane is dead in an apparent suicide. But Ethan Tannor, a detective on the scene and nephew of Keane, suspects something else. In his effort to prove murder, Ethan discovers hidden items in his uncle's safe that reveal there was more to Tobias's past than he initially thought: a strange watch that doesn't tell time, a cryptic journal, confusing newspaper clippings from years past, a cipher that points to something ominous, a worn copy of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, and the mysterious words "Tamám Shud". The more Ethan uncovers, the more he realizes his own life is in danger. And when he stumbles upon a shadow group that tips him off to an impending hostile takeover of the United States, Ethan finds himself in the center of something he can't explain. Political agendas headed by an enigmatic leader, and an evil force tipping the balance of power will bring him face to face with things beyond the realm of belief and possibility. As the lines of reality and fiction become blurred, Ethan embarks on the near impossible task of reshaping the world. If he fails, the battleground will be America, with new territory lines carved across the map as the victor stakes their claim. But Ethan is determined to end it where it all began: April 1986. *Language and violence AND THE TIDE TURNS is Timothy Dalton's debut novel - an action-packed thriller filled with colorful characters that will leave readers guessing as they journey with Ethan Tannor in his quest to uncover the secret behind his uncle's death ... a quest that brings him to places he never imagined, and the discovery of his uncle's strange connection to the unsolved mystery of The Somerton Man.
