Publisher: Tristone Media
Series: The True Lies of Rembrandt Stone
ISBN: 978-1954023079

Listen to me now. You HAVE to read this book. This entire series. Read them as they're published or get them once they're all out in November, but you do NOT want to miss any of these books! I'm on the launch team and was sent the ebook for review.


Trapped in time, he'll have to use the past to fix the present.

Thirty-eight women. Dead. All the in the past. All because Detective Rembrandt Stone played with fate, and somewhere in time unleashed a serial killer. He can't undo their deaths, not anymore, but the serial killer is still at large, twenty-four years later, and now it's personal. Especially when the evidence points to the last person on anyone's radar: Rembrandt himself.

Now he'll have to use the clues from his pasts to track down the killer in the present.

But the killer is onto him and puts the one person Rembrandt loves in his cross hairs. Now, Rembrandt must outwit time to save the people he loves.
Because time is playing for keeps.

My Review:

Can I just start off by saying, 3/4 of the way through Set in Stone I was already wishing for the next book?

Listen, I'm not a fast reader, but when it comes to a Rembrandt Stone book, you can guarantee that I'll read it in one day. This story is just so captivating that there's really nothing that can be done other than read it the moment it hits my Kindle.

This time, in this story, things are a bit different - as if the past few days/20 years of his life haven't been different enough. No wrist watch so all Rem can do is live his life in the moment. Once again, I love that he talks to us, the readers, as though we're there with me, because we basically are, right?

I appreciate that Rem reminds us of the bits and pieces that have happened in previous books/times so that we're all on the same page in the current one. It kind of keeps us on track as to what's happened in other pasts. Kudos to the authors and editors for keeping all of this insanity together!

On scene again are Burke, who was much more chill in this book than any of the others, Shelby, Zeke, and our dearest Eve! It's so bizarre when they're living lives that are different than all of the previous books and I sit on pins and needles waiting to find out how things will change through the story and by the end of the book because we all know that with all of the changes happening during the time travel, things WILL change!

There were definitely some jaw dropping moments in this story! Ones I wasn't prepared for. Things start to piece together for one part of the puzzle, but then begin to fall apart for another. I'm sure Rem is thinking, "Welcome to my world!" As with the last three books, the ending is not at all what I expected and I LOVE it!

I don't think you can read these books and not wonder how things are going to turn out in every facet of the story. I'm becoming invested in more than just Rem & Eve's stories! I want them to go back to how things were at the beginning of book one, but then that means Danny is no more. Ugh! But then if they do go back, Rem has Eve and Ashley. C'mon book 5! I need you sooner than later!
