Great story, well told and lots suspense.
Yes if they hadn't bought any other books featuring Quinn but as for buying more of them I'd tell them to keep in mind the phrase "a distinction without a difference".
Pearl Krasner's mother
Lutz's books featuring Detective Quinn are a good read or listen if you limit yourself to one. I won't be buying any more of them. If I have to listen how Federman's sleeve becomes unbuttoned and his fashion sense once again I'll go mad. The same descriptions of the main characters are used over and over again and remain unchanged in other books. The same repetitive plot as well: the villain is transformed into a serial killer by an earlier experience and must re-enact it and make it a contest against Quinn. I enjoyed the first book but then tedium set in, so no more for me.
Another persona for John Corey. One of the most annoying characters I have ever had to endure
THE LAYERS AND TWISTS AND TURNS
Excellent timing and voices. Too bad one of them had to be John Corey.
I would cut John Corey's characteristics. His low level sarcasm and juvenile responses painful to endure.
I could never read another book with John Cory as a character. His incessant stream of moronic comments and inane responses ruined an otherwise excellent book. If I heard "right" many more times I would have stomped on my ipod. I can't believe that this was the same author who wrote "The Charm School".
He gives life to the characters and captures the sensibilities of the era.
The paradoxes of time travel and the social etiquette of the relevant time period are well done.
The chapter introductions ruined the suspense to the extent I took the earphones off and guessed when they ended, the endless interruptions whenever a character had to say something or do anything to advance the plot rendered the listening painful. One vignette that drove me to distraction was the back and forth exchange with the lockmaster asking whether the boat went up or down the Thames. Then there were the same hackneyed phrases and observations over and over again. I was relieved wen I finally finished listening to the book. Never again!
