"Overtime - Introducing the greatest performer of all time and a half"

Book synopsis (The back of the book says)

Only in a Tom Holt novel can you discover the relationship between the Inland Revenue, the Second Crusade and God's great plan to build starter planets for first time life forms...

It all started for Guy Goodlet somewhere over Caen. One moment he was heading for the relative safety of the coast, aware that fuel was low and the Mosquito had more than a few bullet holes in it. The next, his co-pilot was asking to be dropped off. This would have been odd if Peter had still been alive. Since he was dead, it was downright worrying.

But not quite as worrying as when Guy found himself somewhere in the High Middle Ages - rather than in 1943 - in the company of one John de Nesle.
Unsurprisingly, Guy's first thought was to get out and home sharpish. But then he saw John's sister, Isoud, and somehow found himself agreeing to help John, also known as Blondel, in his quest to find Richard Coeur de Lion...

Book Cover of My Hero

Quote from My Hero

There was something - difficult to describe, when you've only got shoddy, post-modernist adjectives to work with - cheerfully revential in his manner, as if he had just seen the Messiah and remembered that the Messiah owed him twenty quid.
(Tom Holt, "My Hero")
