Who is Joe Kimball?
Joe Kimball is yet another pen name of author J.A. Konrath. While Konrath writes thrillers and Jack Kilborn writes horror, Kimball writes science fiction.
Timecaster takes place in the future, and the hero is a Chicago cop and the grandson of Jack Daniels. He teams up with Harry McGlade III to solve one whopper of a crime. Loaded with action, humor, sex, and cool gadgets, the Timecaster series is classic Konrath with a high-tech twist.
Chicago, 2064: Talon Avalon is bored.
Talon is a timecaster—one of a select few peace officers who can operate a TEV—the Tachyon Emission Visualizer—which allows the user to record events (most specifically, crimes) that have already happened. Violent crime is at an all-time low and there hasn’t been an unsolved murder in seven years. So Talon has little to do except give lectures to school kids—and obsess about his beloved wife’s profession as a licensed sex partner.
Then one of her clients asks Talon to investigate a possible murder. And when Talon uses the TEV to view the crime, the identity of the killer is unmistakable—it’s him, Talon Avalon. Someone is taking timecasting to a whole new level and using it to frame Talon. And the only way he can prove his innocence is to go off the grid—which even in 2064 is a very dangerous thing to do…
WARNING: Contains graphic sex, graphic action, graphic gadgetry, graphic chase scenes, graphic humor, and other graphic stuff too graphic to mention.
Chicago 2064. A libertarian utopia of biofuels, legalized drugs, and casual sex. There hasn't been any violent crime in years.
Talon Avalon is a Timecaster; a cop who is able to look back in time and view crimes that have already happened. But that was before he was framed by an alternate version of himself from another dimension. Now he's being hunted in this world, and countless parallel worlds, as the biggest mass-murderer in history.
While trying to save his kidnapped wife and clear his name, Talon fights to prevent a series of mishaps that could destroy the multiverse, along with the very fabric of spacetime. He only has a few hours to save an infinity of humanity. All it will take is guts, his fists, plenty of narcotics and adrenalin, some high tech weaponry, a wise-ass sidekick, a few talking dinosaurs, and enough strength to survive a plethora of erotic encounters.
Time is NOT on his side.
