I could not get into this book. I was never thrilled nor in suspense. The timesplash was a good concept, but the author never went anywhere with it, just the same thing but bigger.
The characters were interesting, nothing invented, but rather seemed like a 'best of' collection. The young boyish hero (19 or 20 years old), and the drop dead gorgeous girl; on a path of revenge, who can really kick ass and can also cry on the hero's shoulder, the hero's partner; young spanish, smiling, energetic, fast talker who always gets the hero into trouble. One hard as nails, fist smacking boss, and the other boss; a subsitute, authorative father. Not to miss the hero's cookie baking mother. The villain, a real hunk of a man, with girls falling all over him, but sadistic and megalomaniac, and then his short greasy sidekick best friend, who is treated like crap and does all the work. Just so easy to picture all these characters in movies.
I had to force my way through it though, certainly not a page turner, and about two thirds of the way hung on as the ending was too predictable.
Maybe it would make a decent movie, the characters, the special effects of timesplashing and police work for a plot. As a movie I'd probably go see it, as a book, for me, it did not work.
