Overview

10-year-old Dalton Hillyer's father is found dead at the foot of Cleopatra's Needle, the Egyptian obelisk in New York City's Central Park.

He's wearing late 19th century clothes, carrying 19th century French francs. In his pocket is a receipt from a renowned Paris restaurant circa 1889 and a ticket dated 1889 from The Louvre. No one knows why. Next to his body is an ornate piece of jewelry called The Brimstone, which has a disturbing history.

The case is closed.

Seven years pass. Dalton, now 17, gets a phone from a teenaged girl, Juliet, who has information about his father. She tells him about her sister, Eliza, who disappeared seven years ago -- on the same day Dalton's father's body was found.

She also has an outlandish theory: Your father found a way to go back in time to Paris and he took my sister with him. He came back and my sister didn't. I want to know why.

So begins The Eiffel Tower Prophecy, a Young Adult time-travel fantasy. Dalton and Juliet join forces and by using The Brimstone, find a way to go back to Paris 1889.
Also in pursuit of The Brimstone is a grisly mercenary with orders to find it at any cost. A woman, known as The Duchess, employs him. If he returns it, he'll receive a reward of $5 million Euros. He too makes his way to the City of Light.

But once in Paris, 1889, Dalton and Juliet can't get back – until they find an ally in the person of Gustave Eiffel, the man who built The Eiffel Tower.

YOU HAD ME AT TIME TRAVEL! Like all of Gilles’ work, “Eiffel Tower Prophecy” is a tight, lean story that moves quickly and takes no prisoners – except for your attention. Similar to Dan Brown’s novels, you’re immediately pulled into the mystery when the book opens; the action races along with only brief pauses for you to catch your breath. The rich, diverse characters play well off each other, with occasional humor to offset the thrill. Add romance, international chase, time travel and murders, and you’ve got a fast read that you won’t want to put down until you’ve finished it.
