If you do know Jack....,
This review is from: Timecaster (Kindle Edition)
Having read all the Jack Daniels' novels I was delighted to discover that J.A. Konrath is writing a new sci-fi series. It features JD's descendant, a detective in the Chicago of 2064 with futuristic time-recording equipment at his disposal.
Having read both Timecaster novels I'm happy to confirm that they're excellent - different in tone to the JD novels but brimming over with quirky ideas, crazy situations and Joe's trademark witty dialogue. They're a lot of fun!
The price is right too, and the sequel is even better value Timecaster Supersymmetry . My fave authors are GRRM, Stephen King and Joe Abercrombie; Konrath is very different yet somehow hits the spot.
