4.0 out of 5 stars Novel writing by numbers - but still an excellent read, 3 Jun. 2011
This review is from: A King of Infinite Space (Long Beach Homicide) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A King of Infinite Space follows any number of detective novels in chronicling the pursuit of a sadistic serial slasher by a world-weary cop who carries emotional baggage that inevitably interferes with his investigation.

Despite ploughing this much-used furrow, however, Tyler Dilts has produced an enjoyable, very readable novel with likeable characters and good plot pacing. Locations and people are described well and the main players are interesting enough to support a series of novels, if Tyler is given chance to publish more.

On the down side, serial readers of serial-killer novels may well identify the perpetrator sooner than the cops do, and the elements of suspense and danger are somewhat lost as the book focusses more on the procedural detail and politics surrounding the investigation.

If this is Tyler's first novel, however, I look forward to seeing more.
