A Murder in Time is an intricate mystery about a brilliant FBI agent, Kendra, who finds herself transported back in time to the 1800s. Relegated to the servant class, she stumbles across a gruesome murder, and she alone recognizes they have a serial killer in their midst. Kendra scrambles to solve the case before it takes her own life – 200 years before she was ever born. At its core, Julie McElwain’s debut novel is a puzzle, a hunt for a murderer and a quest for justice.
