Publisher's Summary

When we last encountered Donovan Creed, former CIA assassin and freelance killer, he had successfully stolen billions of dollars from the world's most lethal criminals. Now all he wants is a romantic Florida vacation with the very sexy Rachel - no fire ants, bi-polar girlfriends, rabid squirrels, accident prone homicidal maniacs, hailstorms, hairless cats, gangs, faith healers, or pirates.

A Different Donovan.

Right on with the multiple narrators made this twisted tale even more interesting. Orlow, Guidall, and Pebble were excellent choices for this tale.
Locke went a little different wit this story but you know it worked.
I am pleased with this purchase and recommend it happily.
great dark humor especially with doggie.

A pirates life for me

Maybe Locke was pushing out Donovan Creed novels so fast, he just wasn’t sure where to go next. So he invented a new genre. Now and Then is a story about a modern-day mystery tied into a historic series of events. When other writers have done this, they use flashbacks, or chapter seques but Locke actually leaves the present halfway through (Now) and never returns. the rest of the book is about the cause of the modern day dilemmna back in the days of pirates (Then). And he never comes back to the present.

Locke himself says he won’t do it again. I guess feedback was not positive. True, this really isn’t a Donovan Creed book and it would have been much better as a standalone with totally new “Now” characters. But those of you who know Locke know that a tactic like that wouldn’t suit his system of kindle sales. Of course, the closer Locke gets to the top of the bestseller lists, the more likely he is to venture away from the Donovan Creed trademark. That’s when he might try something like this again. And I hope he does because I think it proves his talents as a writer. The “Then” portion of this book takes place in the 1700s and is up there with James Patterson’s “Jester”, or any of the prologues in Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt novels.

In the audio version, Simon Prebble is perfect for narrating a pirate story. I think he made it for me, and further proved that Locke could quite possibly write anything he puts his mind to. I thoroughly enjoy the Creed books but I’m ready to see what other genres Locke can reinvent. Do it again Locke!
