Loose cannon Mick
Giovanni, of the 94th Police Precinct in Brooklyn, New York,
is being called out by Lt. Wanda Chu. He hasn't been the same
since loosing his partner over a year ago during the Kingsborough
Massacre. Lt. Chu is forcing him to slow down and take a vacation.
But first Mick needs to see a woman waiting to speak to him.
Mick thinks Lettitia Merryweather must be an extra in a movie
filming nearby. Or, she is an escapee from Masterpiece Theater.
Lettitia is dressed in Victorian period clothing. She wants
Mick to help her find her missing sister Emmaline. Lettita
tricks Mick into going to Larimer Street. They have made it
to the time portal .Then Lettita pulls out a device that looks
like a pocket watch. The next thing Mick knows, he is in London
and the year is 1888! Jack the Ripper is still on the loose
and Lettitia tells Mick they have a week to find her sister.
Things to ponder: How does Madame Mazorsky
know Mick? Will Mick get back to his own time? Why did Police
Commissioner Sir Charles Warren oversee the investigation
of the murder of White Chapel resident Martha Tabrun? How
did Constable Bertie Tinsdale end up with Emmaline Merryweather's
has painted a picture of life in Victorian London. There are
plenty of twists and turns, as well as red herrings and dead
ends that will keep the reader turning those pages. Mick Giovanni
is not the type of detective to give up. Will he put aside
his growing feelings for Lettitia and get on with solving
the case? This is not my usual genre, but the Jack the Ripper
angle intrigued me. I am looking forward to more Time Wanderer
novels. The author has her pick of many locations and time
lines. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing where we go
next. So, if you are a fan of time travel, then you should
be reading A Love For All Time.
