The year is 1998 and Jimmy Pagley is falling in love--with a pretty, foreign cafe waitress named Haydee. What he doesn't know is that Haydee is a temvelar, a time traveler from the 29th century, on a mission to find her old mentor. Soon Jimmy and Haydee find themselves caught up in a dark conspiracy of rogue temvelars and government agents, on a search that leads through airports and space stations, art museums and suburban bakyards, Greek temples and Medieval castles, and beyond time itself. The Grand Dissolute is a traveler's portrait of a tumultuous, romantic age--our own.

This is not my normal type of read. I read just about anything, except the sci-fi type of stuff usually, but I wanted to open up to that genre a bit more. This book was a bit too predictable for me, and I had a difficult time holding on to the story.. but also with that, I would not rule out reading more from this author.
