If you have not read Steve Thayer, you are missing out on a fantastic author. Ithaca Falls is a great book! I don't want to spoil any of the plot, but it is a murder mystery with some time travel. The characters are well developed and the story will keep you turning the pages. I took a sick day just to finish this. This author has a few other books that are outstanding. I rate him as my all time favorite author. Do your self a favor and start reading this book as well as any of his others, you will not be disappointed.
