Lost Time by J. T. Bishop, the sixth book in the Redstone Chronicles, will appeal to fans of crime drama, suspense, thriller, mystery, and paranormal fiction. Mason and Mikey Redstone's father, Martin, is missing. The siblings and Trick Monroe rush to Texas to find and bring him home. Once again the Texas Rangers and now the private investigators, Mason and Trick, must face a formidable enemy, Ruben Montes. Is he behind the possible abduction of Martin Redstone? The Redstones and Trick learn that Martin has been investigating something in his small office, but they cannot find his laptop. Mikey senses a dark and threatening presence in Martin's house, while a mysterious ghost disturbs Mason with visits. Will Mason and Mikey reunite with their dad?

J. T. Bishop's Lost Time is an enthralling paranormal mystery with a touch of family drama. The author shows the importance and true meaning of family connections. Bishop compares the warm relationship between Mason and Mikey to the relationship between Ruben and his sister, Gloria, who compete. But filial duty is the driving force behind the plot. Bishop offers the engaging and sometimes heartbreaking backstories of the characters, like Trick's self-doubts and struggles to help his mother, Pamela. I liked the witty, heartfelt scene where Mason demonstrates his gift to Ranger Lauren O'Donnell. For me, every encounter with Bishop's amazingly complex characters is like a meeting with good friends. The dialogue is convincing and full of sparkling humor. The book has a gripping element of suspense. The narrative is dynamic, and the plot is rich with captivating action scenes and incredible twists and turns.

In Lost Time, a paranormal murder mystery thriller by J.T. Bishop, after hearing that Mason and Mikey Redstone's father was missing, they traveled to Texas in search of him. Knowing that their father would never leave the house without his trademark cowboy hat and well-worn boots, Mason felt bad about not talking to their father more often. Ruben Montes, their enemy, paid for their father's medical bills and made arrangements for a nurse to care for him. Mason and Mikey accused Ruben of being responsible for their father's disappearance, but they had no hard proof. They felt the presence of something evil in the house and had to deal with it. More mysteries surrounded their father's disappearance than first appeared. Are they going to be able to find him before it is too late?

Lost Time: The Redstone Chronicles Book 6 by J.T. Bishop was a roller coaster of the supernatural, mystery, and murder. It was fast-paced and jam-packed with action, and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. This book was hard to put down, and I turned the pages as quickly as possible. The characters were authentic and relatable. Mason tried to look out for his sister, but Mikey was stubborn and followed her gut. I liked the way Mason made other people aware of the presence of their loved ones and what they had to say. The story was well-written, engaging, and easy to read. I was left guessing right up to the very end due to the unexpected turns and twists. I enjoyed reading this book, and it exceeded my expectations by far.
