Chicago, 2064: Talon Avalon is a timecaster-one of a select few peace officers who can operate a TEV, the Tachyon Emission Visualizer, which records events (most specifically, crimes) that have already happened. With crime at an all-time low, Talon has little to do except give lectures to school kids and obsess on his wife's profession as a licensed sex partner. Until one of her clients asks Talon to investigate a possible murder. When Talon uses the TEV to view the crime, the identity of the killer is unmistakable-it's him, Talon Avalon.

Never one to follow a series and hopefully, this won't become one.
The story is easy enough to track and humorous to a point.
Looking forward to more tales from this author.

Joe Kimball is the pseudonym of J.A. Konrath, who penned the <em>Jack Daniels</em> series I used to devour. Talon turns out to be Jack’s grandson, which was the only reason I decided to read this book. A patron’s assurance that the book eventually got better was the only reason I kept reading it. The high dosage of technology, coupled with my need to frequently consult the glossary in the back of the book gave me a headache. Goodbye, Talon Avalon. Wish I could say it’s been fun.
