    Story

    The year is 1763. Gideon Seymour, cutpurse and gentleman, hides in dense underbrush from the villainous Tar Man. Suddenly the sky peels away like fabric and from the gaping hole fall two curious-looking children. Peter Schock and Kate Dyer have fallen straight from the 21st century, thanks to an experiment Kate's father was running with an antigravity machine.

    Story

    I bought this book just because I like time travel novels, and I think it was a cut above the usual story. It really rolls along and you can't help but get caught up in it. Good reading for anyone from nine to ninety.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    Story

    Grabs you and won't let go. There's real evil in this little town, and it isn't just the Klan. The author and the narrator are each at the very top of their craft.

    Story

    The author takes you right with him into the danger, intrigue and the grueling day to day life of a bright young man forced into service for a cause he abhors. There are certain insights and reactions that are authentic 1862 and can be found nowhere else. I would consider this a must for any student or fan learning about the Civil War. There are a few glitches in the presentation, a few lines get repeated and there's a hum in the last chapter, but the narrator does a good job.

    A chance meeting with Jenny at an Oxford party leaves 17-year-old Chris with hope for a summer romance - and no premonition of trouble. Busy with his job and soon in love with Jenny, whose cheerful surface belies the dark uncertainty of her past, Chris misses all the signs of danger. Before he knows it, he's caught in the sinister web of a criminal whose desire for revenge crushes all those who stand in his way....

    Overall

    Philip Pullman is a wonderful story teller, but this one stinks. You know that the victim is the heroine from the first sentence, you go through the romance of a 17 year olds first love, then you watch him turn into an imbecile and the heroine dies. That's about it. The last hour of this was really hard to take.

    The unraveling of this mystery was a great piece of writing read by a master of his craft. I wasn't familiar with the authors but I intend to buy more by them.
