A hard boiled PI meets the Twilight Zone, kind of. Our PI doesn't carry a gun, like Sam Spade, but when he falls for a dame, she's a tough cookie & he falls all the way, like Mike Hammer. Toss in dimensional space travel & a really smart, nasty villain & you have a fast paced, fun read. The characters were well done. Not cliched completely, but all well drawn with logical motives, faults & idiosyncrasies. Our hero isn't superman nor is he perfect, but he's a pretty likable guy with some almost fatal flaws. The villain is almost too smart & egocentric, but he keeps the pace moving & provides plenty of twists as the story progresses.All in all, it was a fun read & a complete book in itself, although there are additional books in the series. I look forward to reading them. ( )
