New York in the 1920's is the world of Prohibition, speakeasies and an underground run by the underworld. Vampires and mobsters vie for power in the seedy underbelly of Manhattan. A mysterious accident sends Professor Simon Cross and his assistant, Elizabeth West back in time to face demons real and imagined. Simon Cross has spent his life searching for vampires and now that he’s found one, it just might take from him the only woman he’s ever loved. Simon’s life has been a ritual of research into the occult and stoic solitude. He prefers it that way. Until he meets Elizabeth West. A gambler’s daughter, Elizabeth knows a bluff when she sees one. Behind Simon’s icy glares and nearly impenetrable armor beats the heart of a man in desperate need of love. Trials of murder, intrigue and danger push Simon and Elizabeth to the edge of sanity. Out of Time is an award-winning tale of love and redemption.
