Review: Strictly Analog

Strictly Analog by Richard Levesque
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Buy at Amazon

Clever mix of cyberspace and traditional (strictly analog) detective.

The blurb pretty much covers the boring part I'd write here, so I'll skip it.

First good thing: Being reasonably familiar with computers and the trends of personal (really personal) computing, I totally believe Levesque's prediction of the future.

Second good thing: Ted Lomax is likable behind the hard-bitten detective facade. He'd do anything to save his daughter, despite her not having much of a personality.

Third good thing: The love interest, Philly, is not a "throw in a chick for the romance crowd" character. She's unique (boy is she unique), smart, and caring.

Bad things: Um, a couple of typos. Maybe Ted's daughter could be less of a putz. Miles (the villain) might have a little more depth for us to understand his motivations. Strictly for a too-light touch with secondary characters, I'm knocking off one star.

Highly recommended.
