Robert Tracy is spirited away from his own execution. A top-secret government project makes him an offer he can't refuse: work for us or disappear permanently. With no choice, he embarks on a mission to undo a terrorist attack that has already occurred, by being sent back in time 36 hours.
But all is not as it seems. Soon, a conspiracy at the highest level of government to seize total power over the country threatens the second chance at life he has been given. Not knowing whom he can trust, he must fight to save himself, as well as a woman in the past who was drawn into the battle for the very survival of the country.
Spanning both time, and the width of America, 36 is a unique thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
36 is the new, action adventure thriller from Dirk Patton, the best selling author of the V Plague series. Readers and critics are blown away:
"I was hooked from the very beginning. It's rare to get so involved in a book that you are rooting for certain characters, and praying that others get the bullet they deserve."
"As someone who reads roughly 16 books a month, I feel I am a pretty good judge of writing both classics and new authors....Mr. Patton is one of the best I have seen in many years.....don't miss this one and be ready for the next one in his other series."
"A real page turner that has some great twists. Dirk Patton has shown he can write a Stephen King sized novel with great detail, yet still keep it fast paced and engaging. There are real layers to this story. It is not just how the main character changes the past but how much he, and his situation, evolve in the same timeframe."
"36 has the most interesting and complex angle to time travel ever. Saved from his own execution, given a new identity, trained, and sent back in time 36 hours to thwart terrorist attacks, all is going well until he is sent on his latest mission. Forced to question the motives of the people who send him, he has to quickly separate the good guys from those who are trying to destabilize the country. A well written book, as are all of Dirk Patton's VPLAGUE series books."
"36 is just as spellbinding as the Plague series - time travel, government conspiracy intrigue, beautiful girls, guns - what's not to like ! Loved the characters and the multiple story lines."
"I didn't think Mr. Patton could give me a character I love nearly as much as John Chase, but he did!! I was hooked on '36' from page one. Robert Tracy is a relatable guy and you really feel for the situations he's thrust into throughout the book. I love the sci-fi part of it as well (being a self proclaimed nerd and proud of it!) and though there were hints at some pretty complex physics principals it was easy to understand (and even, believe..?) and engaging."
