“I had no idea just how radically my life was about to be altered that day, the day I met Dr. Wilson J. Wells, a PhD in science and higher mathematics. He was also an inventor. It was June 12, 1980. It all started that day. It was a day I would never forget, as it was the same month I had started the agency four years ago. Maybe this also was an omen.”

Set in Chicago, Jake Kincannon, PI: Across the Sea of Time by JW Grodt, features Jake Kincannon, a former homicide detective who opens his own PI business specializing in the paranormal. Together with his assistant and lover Julie Carson, they try to keep the agency afloat by chasing big cases such as the Werewolf Killer. When Dr. Wilson J. Wells offers Jake a lucrative pay packet, he gladly accepts. The job? He needs to travel back in time, May 7, 1937, using Wells’ time machine Teleporter, and stop the murder of his wife Sheila.

I got hooked on the storyline pretty quickly and wanted to know how it all ends. Combining sci-fi elements of time travel makes the story much more exciting and intriguing. Jake's first time travel and plan to save Sheila seems successful, yet there are unpredictable twists that await him. A change in the past, no matter how small, can influence everything else either positively or negatively. Jake Kincannon, PI: Across the Sea of Time shows JW Grodt’s skill in developing intricate details that draw you into the characters and the plot. Readers who enjoy vivid scenes would find story cinematic as a whole.
