Description

It’s one thing for Henny Tinker to think that her handsome and charismatic new boss, Geoffrey Bond, is way out of her league. The more she reflects on his secret trips and his uncanny ability to acquire never-before-seen artworks, the more she starts to suspect that he’s also – quite literally – out of her time-zone. Could it have something to do with the Scottish railway clock in his office that runs perfectly…in reverse? Is it his penchant for period outfits that supposedly coincide with the various themed costume parties he attends? Or has Henny simply been watching too many time-travel movies with her father and now sees evidence of its existence everywhere she looks? Set against the backdrop of modern-day London, While You Were Out is just the right mix of romantic comedy, mystery and a dash of wicked competition in the world of expensive art acquisitions.
