The Watch Thief is Quantum Leap sliced and grated against James Bond, mixed with a bowl of chilli on the head of Forrest Gump.
A novel based on the true story of Trebitsch Lincoln, a tragic comedy, ambitiously set across fourteen countries and forty years. It’s a crossroads of checkpoints for major icons and world events and a man surviving the game of life, time and time again.

“I used to get upset just like you when I read such books. It’s only fiction. As the years went by, I came to see that there are no heroes in real life. Now I take things calmly.”
– From Eugene Onegin, Alexander Pushkin (1825-1832)
