Publisher's Summary

Chicago, 2064: Talon Avalon is a timecaster - one of a select few peace officers who can operate a TEV, the Tachyon Emission Visualizer, which records events (most specifically, crimes) that have already happened. With crime at an all-time low, Talon has little to do except give lectures to school kids and obsess about his wife's profession as a licensed sex partner... until one of her clients asks Talon to investigate a possible murder.
When Talon uses the TEV to view the crime, the identity of the killer is unmistakable: it's him, Talon Avalon.

WTF, the BHV is a SLP

I have to agree with my friend from my hometown, I ain't a better person for listening to this, but I am a happier person. This is a fun short book with plenty of laughs and some good solid Science Fiction. There are also some Maxwell Smart scenes, (missed it by that much.) There is sex and lots of chase scenes. I am not a big fan of chase scenes/fight scenes, especially ones that last for three chapters, but I do like sex. The chase scenes were over done, but the sex scenes just helped with the fun. Wait till you meet Yummy and her friend Tasty. There are nano-tubes, space elevators, jelly ropes and more.

Even though I am not a big fan of fight scenes, there is usually an element that makes the fight quite different from what you read in your normal westerns. Yes, there are too many near death situations, but there is also a mystery that will keep you guessing. The main mystery is well done, and may be overlooked by those who are too troubled by the fun parts.

In chapter eighteen you meet Harry McGlade who makes for an extremely funny sidekick. Harry has a pet bonsai elephant named Penis, who is LOL funny.

A BHV is a Bleeding Heart Volunteer and a SLP is a State Licensed Prostitute. The main character's wife is a SLP. Talk about a challenging marriage.

This is my first J.A. Konrath, Jack Kilborn, Joe Kimball novel, but it won't be my last. Matter of fact I have already started Afraid and the first three hours are scary and very gory.
By the way even though I am white, I don't live in a trailer.

it wont be on your english 101 reading list

This is flat fun. sex, blood, and alot of people get kicked in the nuts!! What eles do you need in a book. The future is hard to buy but it sure would be fun.
The only thing is that the main character almost dies so often it dose get a little flat near the end. With that said i realy enjoyed it I'm not a better human for reading it but i am a happer human for reading it.
