"If Knopf is influenced by Dashiell Hammett and Elmore Leonard, he also shows affinity for lyrical prose." (The Independent)
"Strong plotting, solid characters and hard-boiled dialogue worthy of Elmore Leonard or John D. MacDonald." (Publishers Weekly)
Any additional comments?
The recording of the last chapter is flawed. There are glitches in the sound and the credits at the end are clearly a "first take". It seems to be a quality control issue.

I discovered Chris Knopf's work by accident as I was browsing through my old standby favorites and decided to give him a try. I was not disappointed and have now been collecting all of his novels. This story "Two Time" had rich characters and a great, clear and interesting story line, plus some humor. Get this one AND look for all his books.

There is some time missing in the first part. It didn't seem to matter for the story to make sense though.....
Sam is coming around to be a little more normal, sort of, for him. The setting is still the Hamptons but not the showy part. The author really make the area come alive. This story is no less complicated than the first Sam mystery but in a totally different direction. Some of the story touches on the art world and I came away from the story with a new perspective on "modern" art. As always the engineering details are fascinating.

There were so many times I just wanted to scream, "Oh get on with it." Talk about page fillers! Perfect candidate for abridged.
If I heard about his dam car or dog one more time ..............
Many reviewers disagree ... thank god for differences.
The overall Mystery idea was great ... finally.
Reader was not good with female voices.
