Some people have a Guardian Angel. Some aren’t so lucky, and have a Guardian Devil.

And lifelong green campaigner Verity Player of York has just come face-to-face with hers: evil genius Stan ‘Satanic’ Mills.

He’s the mastermind behind the spread of an idea so simple – and so fundamental to everyday life - that few people would think to question it.

But Verity has long ago grasped its infernal logic. She knows it as the mechanism that lurks behind humanity’s apparent death wish. And now, facing its creator, she’s the only mortal who can fight to make him halt it before its final, devastating phase.

Her struggle pitches her into a surreal game.

Desperate, she bargains for a sporting chance. But this comes at a price: the forfeit of her precious conscience if she fails to strike the first blow by New Year...

Though a fantasy, ‘The Price of Time’ deals with a subtle but destructive force that operates in real life.

Paul Smith : I love books that stay with me after I've read them and this one did. It's an unusual story that has Stan 'Satanic' Mills pitched against a formidable adversary. The story is a little offbeat but hits many-a-nerve in our current crazy society, including the financial industry, climate change, food and much more.

The writing style is very literary, quite intellectual/cerebral but easy to read, despite all of this. As someone who has an interest in physics, the side comments that have a scientific bent were amusing and thought provoking in equal measures.

A good read, finished in a flash!
