The Review Is In!

July 7, 2016

My diversion (divergence?!?) into sci-fi has now been reviewed by Kirkus Indie, the largest reviewer of independent books, and the news is pretty darn good. After parsing the plot, Kirkus goes on to say this about Dark Fire; Yesterday’s Tears:

By novel’s end, the [time travel] device is deployed several times in a fast-paced series of
showdowns, with [the female protagonist]Sim lost at one point and the U.S. president trying to snag the time machine. Benson (Money Side Up, 2016, etc.) shifts gears from his previous Carina Quintana police procedurals/mysteries to produce an entertaining romance/spy mashup that lays the groundwork for his next series. The novel is best at establishing its Duff/Sim tensions, with a particularly engaging emotional payoff in this couple’s lightning round of resurrections/meetings….[T]his is an enjoyable tale and a promising series launch. A clever, satisfying time-bending love story and adventure.

So, if you haven’t already, go snag a copy (paperback or electronic) of Dark Fire: Yesterday’s Tears. It will make great summer/beach reading!
