Having written many Amazon reviews in the past, I was prepared to write a five star review for the Goldilocks Enigma. As a fan of Davies since the 80's I was really excited about this book when I spotted it in the bookstore. As with every Davies book it was easy to read and totally mesmerizing. However, before I wrote my review (opinion actually) I read some of the other reviews. I was disturbed to read the review by Randolph T. McCourt. I investigated his claim that the Cosmic Jackpot was the same book. Indeed it is! Word for word. I might be able to understand a author that has a poorly selling book repackaging it in a new cover with a jazzed up title but I can not see this being done with a book that is already selling very well. You can check out the sales rank yourself on both books. I would kill for scores such as these. Which brings me to the conclusion that this was published only for greed. I will not buy another Davies book. With 100 reviews written, this is my first one (1) star. As Randolph McCourt said, please be warned. Michael L. Gooch
