Description

Florida state prosecutor Claire Talbot is as tough as they come, and not everyone loves her for it. Newly promoted Felony Division Chief, Claire has about as many jealous detractors as she does supporters. Some colleagues are openly skeptical about her youth, her abilities, and even her gender. When a highway project construction crew unearths two skeletons in a common grave, Claire reopens an investigation into a string of abductions that took place before she was born. While researching the file, she meets retired cop Marc Hastings, who once worked on the case. He maneuvers his way into the investigation-and into Claire's life. Marc has an uncanny familiarity with Claire's habits, and she begins to realize that not all is as it seems. The detective urges Claire on, mysteriously convinced that only she can solve the case. Together, they unearth more graves. But then, disaster strikes ... and Claire finally discovers what Hastings knew all along. It's a secret almost too shocking for a sane mind to grasp. The key to the killings may lie deep in Claire's own past. But what if Claire's past lies in her future?

Full of spellbinding twists, Douglas Schofield's Time of Departure will appeal not only to thriller aficionados, but to readers who appreciate a strong female lead and a compelling love story. A page-turner that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, Time of Departure heralds the arrival of an immensely talented new crime novelist.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 26, 2015 – Schofield's engrossing debut with a Twilight Zone twist teams feisty Florida state prosecutor Claire Talbot and much older but still sexy retired cop Marc Hastings. For reasons Claire can't understand yet Marc tries to interest her in taking a fresh look at the unsolved string of abductions of eight young Gainesville-area women in the late 1970s, his final investigation. Not 24 hours later, skeletal remains of two women are discovered during a highway excavation and at least one looks to be a match with a '70s victim. Needless to say, Claire finds this puzzling, and more than slightly suspicious. But she begins to become equally unnerved by the uncanny way that Marc, with whom she is rapidly falling into a relationship, knows so many personal, even intimate details about her. It's a tribute to criminal lawyer Schofield's persuasive powers that his characters, procedural elements, and atmosphere are convincing enough to keep those pages turning without logic getting in the way.
