15 Minutes to Live

The woman he’s just had sex with has been dead for three weeks.

It was good sex. Carl hadn’t seen Jessica in twenty years… not since high school… and they passionately ravaged each other as if it was yesterday. There’s just a couple of little problems with their hot encounter. For one thing, Jessica thinks that it is yesterday and that they are still teenagers. And Carl discovers that she was killed three weeks ago.

Is she insane? An imposter? A ghost? Finding the shocking answer could cost Carl and Jessica their lives in this wildly inventive, exhilarating, sexually-charged thriller from Emmy-award winning writer Phoef Sutton that critics are already hailing as “Elmore Leonard on crack.”

Reviews for 15 Minutes to Live

"Phoef Sutton has a wonderful and unique voice.  This is a romantic tale, full of suspense and human emotion.  It's also funny in its own special way.  Once I started it, I couldn't stop." --  Janet Evanovich, NY Times Bestselling author of The Stephanie Plum novels  

"The hippest, most original novel of 2013 was written in 1998. But that's the least of the time-warping pleasures of FIFTEEN MINUTES TO LIVE, an invigoratingly original, hilariously thrilling novel about a woman caught in an endless, fifteen-minute loop of her teenage life, and the hapless TV writer who finds himself trapped with her...desperately trying to save her, and ultimately himself, from a horrific demise." --  Lee Goldberg, Author of the MONK novels, THE WALK and THE HEIST.  

"When the one love you can never forget has forgotten everyone in the world but you it's both a soaring fantasy and heartbreaking tragedy. FIFTEEN MINUTES TO LIVE explores this completely unique relationship with tenderness, suspense, complexity, and depth.  Treat yourself to a haunting romantic journey you will never forget." --  Ken Levine, Producer of MASH, CHEERS and FRASIER; author of THE ME GENERATION BY ME  

"Part mystery, part adventure, with some of the elements of time travel perfectly blended with just the right amounts of romantic tension and humor, the fast-paced novel by veteran CHEERS writer Sutton is definitely a winner." --  Booklist  

"FIFTEEN MINUTES TO LIVE is a great read with great characters. Love and death and loss take on a new meaning when a woman's memory loss becomes her best defense against a killer. Grab a copy! You'll be glad you did!" --  Joel Goldman, Author of The Lou Mason, Jack Davis and Alex Stone novels
