Descrição do produto

* Rathbone Kydd: over sexed, under paid and out of time *


"I loved this book! If you love rock music, time travel, stuff about government conspiracies, and a good laugh, you'll love it too." Terry Tyler - author of 'Dream On'

"Best time travel tale I’ve ever read... " Rea200289 – Amazon reviewer.

"Time will reveal everything. It is a babbler, and speaks even when not asked.” Euripides, some old guy from ancient Greece, 480-406 BC

February 2012: Detective Superintendent Derek Burridge’s wife, Vicky, has been involved in a serious car accident, knocking down a woman and narrowly missing a man. The woman is inexplicably in a coma and the man, the charismatic but uncouth Rathbone Kydd, claims to have travelled through time.

Derek launches an investigation into Rathbone’s claims, many of which are made whilst he is a patient in the mental health department. When Derek checks into the alleged suicide of Rathbone’s father in 1972, he seriously considers the possibility that Rathbone is telling the truth. During the course of several interviews, Rathbone’s tale unfolds: 1970s rock music, spying, drug dealers, time travel, quantum physics, sex and violence all feature heavily in this humorous conspiracy thriller cum high tech thriller.

Derek and Rathbone soon uncover a conspiracy of, quite literally, quantum proportions involving a ruthless biker gang, rock’n’roll, international drug smuggling, the Greek secret police, the Russian KGB, and British Military Intelligence. They discover that secretive government agencies can be just as ruthless as the wildest biker gang, and that time will, indeed, reveal everything.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A hoot of a bad spy novel...complete with time-traveling hippie 24 de novembro de 2012

I was not quite sure what to expect from the book but loved the title, and it induced me to download. Definitely not your humdrum mystery.

Other reviewers have given a synopsis; I will therefore resist adding more to avoid spoiling the ride.

It was indeed an entertaining storyline even if it dragged in a few spots. The main characters were well developed; the peripheral characters not so much so---although the fabric pseudonyms for the military group made me smile each time I encountered them.

I expect the story particularly resonated with those of us who lived through the 70s; I have no clue if the British-centric music references were real or bogus...and it didn't matter.

I mildly disagree with the reviewer who found it well-edited. Even though I automatically ignore British spelling variants (focussed, practise, artefacts, ageing, etc.) there were quite a few grammatical errors that stuck out: the author kept using the word "amount" when s/he meant "number" such as "amount of times"; "amount of beer glasses," etc.

Other word usage errors appeared like: whom for who; "who's voice"for "whose"; "shit creak" for creek (that one made me chuckle actually); "balled" for "bawled";"taught" knot in larynx for "taut." There were occasional spelling mistakes in proper names like Eos for Ios and "Hannah-Barbara" for "Hanna-Barbera." Not earth-shattering but could use some clean-up editing.

I found the British slang enjoyable and thanked heavens for the built-in Kindle dictionary to help me decipher words (especially those related to male sex stuff:-) like todger, goolies, wanker and unfamiliar words such as oiks, dosser, boffins, doddle, etc.

Prudish readers might object to the casual profanity, but it was not over the top by any means.

All in all an amusing way to spend my Thanksgiving holiday inbetween meals and relatives.

I've been fortunate enough discover K J Bennett on Twitter. I even got a chance to be interviewed by Rathbone Kydd. It was such a fun experience that I knew I had to buy the book. I had some idea what I was getting into--a book with an arrogant playboy as the main character...but I was wrong.

The story is told from the point of view of Rathbone Kydd--a naïve but good-hearted rocker from the seventies. As well as Detective Superintendent Derek Burridge--the fair, hard-nosed cop from the present. And an occasional visit with a few shady government employees. It's largely written in the third person with jumps into first person for Rathbone's tales of his wild past (or present? :D ).

K J's writing is smooth and well edited. The pace keeps you interested. His descriptions are fresh and often humorous. These characters are believable...and identifiable. I found myself rooting for them all (well, not the shady ones). And the ending is satisfying.

All in all this is an adorable book (though I bet he'd smack me for calling it that).

5.0 de 5 estrelas Some Quantum Fun 30 de setembro de 2012

This novel is packed full of sci-fi, time travelling fun.

Rathbone Kydd comes from the 1970s and is in a band called 'Red Hot in Alex'. Their biggest fans are a hell's angels group who are notorious to say the least. Rathbone finds himself in all sorts of hot water and inexplicably, travels through time to the present day. He finds himself in the company of a police officer called Derek, and his wife, and he tells his story.

The main words I would use to describe this novel is fun, fun, fun. Rathbone is a true 70s rock star and he's irresistible to women! So imagine what happens when he meets Derek's wife... Compared to the incredibly normal Derek, Rathbone is even funnier but the two manage to make a team. The novel is also quite gritty in places, such as the crime that is committed by the hell's angels gang, but this is done well and it gives a feeling of true danger to the novel.

Overall, this is a well written, gripping read and if you like your stories original and quirky, then this is definitely worth downloading.
