Editorial Reviews

A mystery book centered in Florida? NO....impossible. Okay, not really....but this one certainly stands apart from the crowd in typical Donovan Creed fashion. "Now & Then" by John Locke has readers welcoming back this beloved character but not in a shower of emotion....rather another tale of mystery, suspense, and knock your socks off action. Blending a mix of fantasy and reality, author John Locke delivers another great addition to a growing series...a great escape for your next weekend read!
Bradley James
If James Cameron is done making goofy movies and if Hollywood is done with wretched remakes, how about you take a look at this book and consider it for a script? It's a shame that books like these don't ever get considered. With that said, how many books have billionaires assassins and the supernatural?
Great locations and set pieces as well as enough characters to hold you over for some time...with adrenaline and actually got off the plane and sat in the boarding area to finish. Great fun.

Now and Then is a great moderately paced book created by John Locke. How many times have you gone on vacation and everything went perfect? Never! Lucky for Creed he's a former CIA and knows how to react when things go wrong. Locke fed me a stellar novel loaded with suspense. Reading the Donovan Creed series will surely make you a fan of Locke's amazing imagination.

In Now and Then Locke recaptured what was in the first two novels of this series. I might have truly enjoyed this because I am a born and raised Floridian but Locke has a straight-forward way of writing a thriller that is action packed and fun to read.

This Donovan Creed book is very different than the others. This one has a mystery surrounding the plot and it puts a different spin on things. Creed heads down to St. Albans, FL with his gorgeous girlfriend, Rachel, who is also a little bit off her rocker. Makes for an interesting vacation for everyone! They end up in a bed and breakfast and in the middle of the town's mystery of a missing woman from the area. Laught-out-loud moments involving the poor schlup who tries to kill Creed (again and again and again) and blunders every attempt in a crazy, slap-stick kind of way. The book is divided into 2 parts, Now and, of course, Then (get it?) The then part involves a great story line about St. Albans and pirates and is the only pirate story I have ever enjoyed. Not the usual Creed storyline, but still the usual originl book that is hard to put down!

In Now and Then, John Locke fantastically portrayed various aspects on the word "adventure". It seems as in every single Donavan Creed novel, Locke takes Donavan through the most extreme situations, which is definitely the reason why I enjoying his books. Specifically, there was plenty of intense occurrences. In this round of events, Locke place Donovan on vacation with his girlfriend. However, everything horrible that is understand transpires, which leads to Mr. Former CIA to come to the rescue. I enjoyed the multiple details of describing each scene. I definitely can relate to being on vacation and everything goes wrong. This is a must read thriller!

This novel is outragously entertaining. I found the storyline in this book to be lighter than that of the previous three books in the Donovan Creed Series. The blending of the past and present added a nice touch to the plot without straying the reader off course by complicated timelines. It's one mistery after another, a must read if you enjoy being able to put clues together yourself and solving mysteries.

I don't think I can say that this is Locke's best work. As I read on, the story felt more and more trite and forced, events didn't unfold the way they have before for Donovan Creed and his flavor-of-the-week lady friend, and each page I turned took more and more effort on my part a a reader. I wasn't grabbed. I wasn't surprised. And, admittedly, I even caught myself raising an eyebrow more than once. A gaggle of superstitious townsfolk, a would-be killer brought down by ants, and still more woman issues? My reaction to finishing this read was one word: "Next."

This was a short but entertaining read. The story was in two parts, the first being based on current day adventures of Donovan Creed and the second on 17 century pirates off the coast of Florida. While entertaining this did not live up the high paced, action packed prior Creed stories. The modern day Creed story was the typical crisp writing with several plot twists and turns. However the 2nd part was more story telling of the life and times of pirates and how the Fla town came under some type of curse. Both plots let the reader hanging with no real closure. In summary an entertaining read but left much to be desired from plot development and ending.

This book was just weird. Entertaining but weird and, in the end, pointless. I was left disappointed and bewildered.

This is another great great Jonathan Creed novel. I would recommend reading the Creed novels in order, since each one builds on the last one. This novel has to do with ancient pirates and possible ghosts from them influencing a small town in Florida. I recommend it.

The first half of the book was good but it just seemed to fall off and then the past story seemed to take off.

Different but good!

This book did not make much sense. Pity it could have been his best. Instead he chose to write two novels in one. He failed to then connect them in the end. Not his finest work by a long shot.

OK book. I liked the change of the present with the past, but I paid for a 300+ page of a Donovan Creed book, but got 150 pages of something else. Please get back to the original format. I guess it is time to try the $0.99 westerns. I give up on this series.
