Five different people. Five separate lives. Sixty minutes to bind them for ever.
Hassan, Jim, Shuna, Dan and Nadia come from very different worlds. If life were straightforward, their paths would never cross.
But our lives are rarely that simple and, as the clock ticks away the minutes of a single hour on a July morning, fate draws all five together in a headlong rush towards disaster.
Who are the heroes and who are the villains?
Tony Salter’s latest novel leaves us guessing right up to the last page.
Sixty Minutes is my first Tony Saltzer novel, and it won’t be my last. This story is really relevant, with themes if terrorism in the 21st century. I think one of my favorite parts of this novel is that it is a bit of a sympathetic exploration of a killer’s mind and I think that makes it unique.
The characters are amazingly strong. We are thrown into only 60 minutes of their lives, and we are introduced to 5 different characters, yet each are well developed. I love how Tony Saltzer is able to create such a character driven novel without a ton of time.
This is such a great novel. I really enjoyed how 5 random people’s stories converged in only a matter of 60 minutes and it all made so much sense. A fascinating story that I read really quickly.
I highly recommend Sixty Minutes. It’s an absorbing story and well worth checking out!

Having survived the Dotcom boom, he went on to be a founder of the world’s largest website for expatriates, a major music publisher and a successful hotel technology business. In amongst this, Tony found the time to backpack around the world twice (once in his twenties and once in his fifties), learn six languages (including Norwegian and Greek) and to find a beautiful Norwegian wife.
