ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (ANS) -- “A lot can happen in ten minutes. Skyscrapers can fall. Tsunamis can wipe a town off the map. Presidents can be inaugurated. In the mere timeframe of ten minutes, people are born and people die. Eternal destinies are decided.”
At the outset of the novel, Foster is a rising star of a local television station, has a storybook marriage, a strong sense of integrity, and an unwavering Christian faith to guide him. Under the pressure of his television station and the lure of securing the weekend anchor position, Foster betrays those around him, behaves in a manner that contradicts his faith, and seals his fate in the seemingly innocuous time span of ten minutes.
Desperate to help the flailing news station attract ratings, Foster is sent to follow up on an anonymous tip from someone who demands more than morality allows in exchange for the story of the decade. Despite his guilt and some ominous threats, Foster initially experiences overwhelming success and rewards for his actions, landing the job and garnering national acclaim for his station, pleasing his ratings-hungry bosses.
As the plot unfolds, Reynalds gives new meaning to the old maxim of weaving a tangled web with deception, as his desperation to cover up his initial transgression leads him to betray his country and, inevitably, destroys his once perfect life.
He writes, “As a result of what happened during that time, Cameron Foster betrayed his wife and country, provided aid and comfort to the enemy, disgraced his profession, and brought shame on his faith.”
“10 Minutes” is a page-turning story that will keep readers riveted as Foster imparts the valuable lesson of how much can happen in ten minutes and how important it is to maintain our values at all times.
