“Neither Here nor There”

It’s selling nicely and I’ve updated it twice when some typos were pointed out. There are six reviews up this morning. Please review it even if you can’t give it a 5 star review. Thank you.

    Would volunteer as a beta reader if you need one.

    Loved it. Reviewed and waiting for whatever you write next. This will make another excellent series

    Mac, I’ve been a fan of your books since the first April novel. So I got “Neither Here nor There” for my Kindle this weekend and ended up sitting up all night (or pretty close) reading it. A very entertaining new book, much in the same anarcho-libertarian mode as your other books, and a gripping read. It looks like the beginning of another series, as the end didn’t really wrap anything up, but that is probably a good thing.

    Two quibbles: one is probably the equivalent of a typo, so you can probably change it (and you should). Early in the book (location 1033 on my Kindle) — maybe chapter 3 or 4, you are describing the first successful test of the device, and you state that the target is set at one meter from the device, and you set the focus to 100 centimeters, and it works! But 100 centimeters IS one meter; elsewhere you reference it correctly as 100 millimeters, or 1/10 of a meter. I think you should fix this.

    The second quibble is that the technology you reference in 2058, much of it, seems to be the technology of about 2010, already slightly dated; in addition, the price of heavy-duty computing is already much more reasonable than your characters seem to be paying (unless wages have REALLY stagnated in the next 40 years); and you don’t have to know anything about programming to be a computer user nowadays, but to learn programming still takes some effort. As a retired 30-year computer programmer and system analyst I speak from experience. So Harold wouldn’t be able to look over Jay’s shoulder and spot what his code is doing unless he has major programming experience. Most programmers have a hard time reading each other’s code without studying it closely for at least a few minutes.

    Still, over all I greatly enjoyed the new book and hope you’ll write many more. If you ever need advice on computer issues, let me know.

      Thank you, I’m always happy to know how I’ve messed up – especially the centimeter/ millimeter goof. That was just an embarrassing brain fart. I’ll fix that and maybe a few words on the code too. It’s handy for future reference too – thanks.

    Thoroughly enjoyed “Neither Here nor There” I’m also impressed that you taught me a new word. Kenopsia, which I have never seen before in print. I’ve also read all the “April” and “Family Law” series and really got a kick out them too.

      Thanks – I’ve enjoyed doing that to a few people. Lagniappe was the one I probably got the most mail about.

    Loved the book – especially JB’s death!!! It was a nice change from what other authors have done.

      Thanks, it’s a thing…

    I hope there is a follow-on book. I hated getting to the end, sat there slightly stunned when end it did. I reviewed it on Amazon.

    So just read this – I think this is a reflection of why Mackey Chandlers books resonate so strongly with me…

      Take the camera to a whore house or dog fighting ring and take video of the police going to recover it. Post on YouTube. No matter what they say nobody will buy it. Yeah I’m nasty that way.
      In “Down to Earth” Papa-San put a raw chicken in a drone crushed it and sent it back.
      When I was a Senior in high school cops stopped me and gave me a ticket already started for going through a stop sign on a street I’d never been down. I had to look it up on a map. They obviously started the ticket before they found out the person was on the special can-not charge with anything in this city list. They had ‘bad luck’ for almost two years before I got tired of it.

    Totally loved it. Have left a review and am eagerly awaiting your next book. Please consider this spinning into a series. I lost sleep reading it, I could not put it down.

    Fort Knox’s gold store is the place Jay could tap for a replacement of the gold stolen from him by the government.
