Format: Mass Market Paperback
Timecop is back. Having been prematurely consigned to the TV trash heap, timecop Jack Logan is back in a new adventure, and a lot of fun it is too. Dan Parkinson shows us how it's done with a truly villainous villain, a staunchly heroic hero and lots of time travelling action. If the book has a flaw, it's the fact that Parkinson uses a lot of terms that he never explains. What is TimeTrust? E-warp? ChronComp? The way they are used seems to indicate that the reader should know what they mean, but since they are never properly introduced anywhere, how could we? A paragraph or two explaining these would have helped tremenously. Despite this, the book is a rollicking action tale that should appeal to anyone seeking a few hours of light diversion, or to fans of the TV series. Recommended.

The second Timecop novel can be read all on its own, but what I liked most about it was that Parkinson used continuity from Viper's Spawn- the first novel, making it a much more enjoyable read for me. I was glad to see the return of Julie Price (the future TEC agent from Viper's Spawn.) She has an nice supporting role on the TEC team, along with Matuzek, Easter, Hemmings, O'Donnelly, and Fuller. Jack Logan may be the best Timecop there is, but this novel shows how he must rely on his entire team in tracking a ruthless criminal like the Scavenger. Well done, and a slight improvement over the first novel.

Fun start to a new series 25 May 1999

Fair, but Flawed 11 July 2003
By Nathan Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Scavenger, the second Timecop novel from Dan Parkinson, is a decent second outing, albiet not nearly as gripping as its predecessor or the next novel in ther series.
Continuity fans will be glad to see Claire taking a more active role and mentions of events in the previous novel (Jack's house being bombed, Julie Price's duty with the TEC, etc.).
Continuity fans will despise the fact that this novel continues the need for "blast suits" for time travel, which is completely absent in the TV series, and one cringes to notice that the story takes place *after* Viper's Spawn (whose ending takes place on Dec. 31, 2007), and yet still takes place, somehow, during 2007. It can't be both before *and* after your first novel, Mr. Parkinson.
