Publisher's Summary

Sam Acquillo, ex-boxer, ex-corporate executive, and accidental hero of The Last Refuge, can't seem to stay out of trouble. All he really wants to do is hammer a few nails into his ramshackle cottage, drink a great deal of vodka, and hang out with his dog, Eddie. But when a car bomb outside a trendy waterfront restaurant kills a prominent financial consultant, injuring Sam and his lawyer friend, he is drawn into the investigation. Where the police have met roadblocks, Sam makes inroads with his trademark wit, instinct, and charm. Set against the backdrop of Southampton, Long Island, Two Time is full of moody sunsets, beachfront properties, and beautiful people with an extraordinary amount of money and very dangerous secrets.

Critic Reviews

"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)

There is a problem with this recording

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.

Great Novelist continues with great work

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.

Strong entry in the series but,

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.

Hope you have lots of time

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.
