A step backwards, but still a step 20 Mar. 2008
By Rekz kaRZ - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
More inspiration to stop reading the series, unfortunately.

I almost enjoyed the book, but not quite. Once again, a great setting, wonderful characters, and a plot that can't hold up to much inquiry.

The new gun was interesting -- but annoying. Maybe in the future EVERYTHING will talk and have a personality, but for me, HARV is enough human/machine conversation for a hard-edged detective of few words.

Felt like moving from a novel genre to watching a video game.

Again, would make a great movie. Very visually written.

These books deserve a little more focus on PLOT, re-examination of RESTRAINT by the writer, and stay ON GENRE.

And thank you for your work. I am a fan, albeit I'm growing disappointed w/this series.

Cleverly Written Humorous SciFi 29 Jan. 2008
By SciFiChick - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Private Detective Zach Johnson finds himself in the middle of a political battle between the Moonies and Earth. And the people from the moon are willing to do anything to win their freedom from Earth, including murder. When a young woman from Earth is framed for murdering three of World Council members, Zach follows his suspects to the moon. Zach must hunt down a murderer, while constantly on the lookout for those who want him out of the way.

A wonderful mixture of humor and adventure, this science fiction mystery was a fun treat. And though this is not the first in the series, I didn't have any trouble jumping into the story. The character of Zach Johnson is extremely witty, compassionate, and a glutton for punishment. His AI, HARV, has an extremely sarcastic and arrogant personality which makes him almost Zach's opposite. The rest of the characters are pretty satirical in nature, making for a humorous look into the distant future.
Wild, warped, and hopeful... 21 April 2008
By Matthew Castelli - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
...for John Zakour as it looks like he is getting more comfortable flying solo with Zach Johnson. This book definitely qualifies as "Brain Bubble Gum", but it's fair to say that is the idea. The series trend of each ZNJ adventure being even more outrageous than the previous is sure to buckle under its own weight soon so it will be interesting to see where Zakour goes with it from there. I like the addition of GUS as it gives HARV a sidekick to riff with, often to the chagrin of ZJN, but that in turn is part of the fun. It was also nice to see Carol have more of a key role and added to the "Alas, poor Zach, we all know so much more than you" club. What I really enjoyed were the scenes where Carol, HARV, and GUS are all discussing various elements of Zach's nature, or the like, within his own brain. One can almost here ZJN saying, "Uhm, hello? I'm here too ya' know, and I can hear you!" There were many times I found myself chuckling out loud.

Zakour also does a nice job here calling back to his prior adventures, and in a very subtle manner, breaks the fourth wall once in doing so. Not in a Boston Legal/David E. Kelley subtle, but even more so, which in turn makes you feel like you're in on the joke. Of course, this only applies if you've read the earlier books in this series. If you haven't, you don't necessarily miss anything, but if you have, it makes it all just "that much" more fun.
Stopping a war of worlds can be a lot of fun 19 Sept. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Moon is a paradise for blooming psis and the people living there think it's time to seek independence from Earth. Unfortunately the World Council disagrees and every time there is a vote concerning the issue, they vote against it. However, more and more people on Earth are rooting for the Moon's independence - the so-called moonies. When three people from the World Council die days before the new vote on independence and the crime coincides with a visit of the Head Administrator of the Moon, Zach starts investigating as he believes in the innocence of the woman the police arrested. To make things worse, Electra (Zach's girlfriend) is invited for a conference on the Moon along with the brightest minds on Earth. Zach decides to go to the Moon after Electra and takes Carol, HARV and his new talking gun GUS with him. Knowing how fate likes to treat Zach, a war of worlds is in the horizon for him to stop.

This series is so funny, I can't put these books down. Filled with action and witty comments there is no reason why you won't enjoy this book or the whole series. Regarding this story, the pace is quite fast, the mystery is well built as well as the possible suspects and all the characters are quite believable, considering the super powers they have. Reading this was a pleasure.
To the moon 13 Aug. 2008
By R. Howell - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is book 5 for our retro detective, Zachary Nixon Johnson. The moon, under the political leadership of Boris Sputnik, is once again seeking its freedom from Earth rule. As the World Council is set to meet and vote, three of its members (including Sexy Sprockets) are murdered. The mutant bodyguard of Sexy, Shannon Cannon is arrested and makes a plea to Zach to find the real murderer. Thusly, Zach is accompanied as always by supercomputer HARV and his psi secretary Carol as the rocket off to the Moon to find answers to unasked questions. The problem is, the frequency of psionic minded women are of a greater ratio on the Moon and then there are all those gorillas running about. All this and Zach gets a new super gun, GUS, from crazed scientist Randy Pool.

Yet one more welcome addition to the Zach Johnson anthology and hopefully it's not the last. Carol gets a bigger role, HARV seemed a bit out of whack, and GUS has got to go. However, there are numerous editting errors in this printing.
