If you like Sherlock Holmes

If you could sum up Some Danger Involved in three words, what would they be?

Sherlock meets Watson

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

No, a slowly developed story. Ending a little strange, and questionable

What about Antony Ferguson’s performance did you like?

He did a good job,the right intonation and deferences between the characters

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Just likeSherlock Holmes

Better than I was expecting

Alternate universe book. With some interesting twists. The book kept me involved and the narration by the author was excellent.
My only problem was I thought Tesla would come up with cooler stuff
I think I will try another of the authors books to see if they are as good as this one.

Story had too many holes

Very disappointed. Story line was weak. Top security people were really stupid, this way it made it easier for the author- it just seemed like he was too lazy to come up with more credible scenarios.

Great- different than the McKnight Books

Set in Urban Chicago and not the desolate Michigan U.P. like most of his other books.
Many are probably not familiar with Steve Hamilton, since in the past he was considered to be a "Michigan" writer (according to the NYTiimes), Steve writes fast paced action books. Is this book the main character makes a bargain with an evil character, who can get him released from jail, but in return he has to do whatever he request for the next twenty years.
Great narration, good character development. You can tell this is being developed to be another series like McKnight. In the McKnight series the main character was a reluctant private detective, in this series the main character is a reluctant hit man.
Hopefully Hamilton will continue to write McKnight books and I look forward to seeing how this Nick Mason character deals with his situation in the next book.

Rome unlike you would imagine

What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

He is a great narrator, I will be looking to see if he is narrating any other books!

Any additional comments?

Explains life in Rome, as you would imagine it might be. Slavery is common, everybody seems to own a few. Historical characters are involved and you get a feeling Rome was not such a good place even for the nobles.

Makes you Think

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Book makes you think, unlike most books in this genre it doesn't make alien worlds based on earthly values.
Easy to see how a few on earth would orchestrate our own destruction

Starts Slow and builds up to a very interesting story!

Another very good Scott Myers book. Luke Daniels is as always great as a narrator.
Politics and humor in this alternate world. We can all identify with many of the characters, either in business , politics, family, or neighbor.
Story has many twists and turns, and surprisingly reaches a logical ending.

The narrator does a great job!

Great historical Fiction

It's really great to have a historical fiction murder mystery book, where the characters do not have to be politically correct by today's standards. It is a must read!
The book includes all the great Roman historical figures, and as far as I can tell its historically accurate
Although I need to do more research on the history of the Vatican grounds which the book describes in some interesting ways
