Meet the Author

Finding himself misplaced in the 21st century, Robert Bruce Stewart has opted to retire to what he hopes will be a more congenial era for a person of his sensibilities by means of fiction writing. Meanwhile, his temporal self lives with his wife and cat in a small-town hermitage in western Massachusetts where he spends his idle hours tending to the needs of tadpoles and keeping his ill-mannered bamboo grove in check.

    Well worth reading

    I purchased this book prior to a business trip overseas. I started reading it and by the time I landed in Frankfurt, Germany to change planes I had finished and was very much satisified. The way the book flows and the history of the characters and the state piqued my curosity. Well worth reading again, also have tissues on hand and if you have a son think about what the young character went through and it may help your son understand growing up.

    I really did enjoy reading this book. At times, it was a little difficult for me to keep track of all the characters, but overall, it was a fun mystery. As Harry investigates a man who committed suicide and his connection to two other deaths, his quirky wife, Emmie, is right there in the middle of everything stirring things up. And, yes, Emmie is indeed quirky! But I loved her character. In fact, Harry and Emmie are both a hoot! I would certainly enjoy reading more books by this author.

    Well written and fast paced

    I've read the author's series and thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters are top notch - especially Harry and Emmie. The period setting is also wonderfully done. As another reviewer mentioned, This story was a bit difficult to follow with such a huge cast of characters and intricate plot.

    Fun rea

    I don' t usually write reviews but I have to say for a free book I wasn't expecting this to be such a great story. Funny as hell and well worth my time. I look forward to reading more about Harry and Emmie.

    Enjoyable

    I loved the historical setting of early 20th century Brooklyn and Manhattan. The characters were interesting though occasionally the plot became slightly convoluted.

    So, So

    I picked this book because I live in NYC. But all this silly male character and his stupid nosy wife do is run around getting on and off the subway. Boring.
    Would not recommend.
