    Clean, awesome fun! I absolutely soaked up this story with a big grin on my face. The audiobook was top notch and had the perfect narrator. I'm so on board with this series from now on. Totally kickass! The only thing knocking a star off the rating is that I had the solution in mind all along and thought it was glaringly obvious, but ... I'm damaged goods. Seen too much. Read too much. 😂 Still enjoyed it though. Heck yes, I need more! 🥳 Clean, awesome fun! I absolutely soaked up this story with a big grin on my face.

    Another fantastic book by Nathan Van Coops! If you were a time traveling detective, would your solve rate be 100%? Would the first 48 hours after a murder even matter, if you could stretch those hours into days, weeks or months? Would you just go back in time and witness the crime, solving the whodunnit instantly? All of this and more!

    Okay! I found this a little confusing at times but I still enjoyed it. I can't even tell you what it's was about but it was about time travel. So, I would recommend it to people who like time travel. I liked Greyson Travers but I really liked his AI Waldo. There was no romance and the F-bomb was used 6 times. As for the narration: Stacy Carolan was just okay for me. He did a good job with the voices but he read without emotions. He never laughed or yelled or whispered or sounded grumpy, nothing exc Okay!

    Grey is pretty confident he can solve any case that comes his way. He has a secret weapon, he can travel in time and find out exactly what happened. However the latest case is proving a lot more difficult and he's running out of time to find out why. This was a good start to a new series though I feel like he could have used the time travelling element to solve the mystery a bit more easily than this. I loved Grey's slightly sarcastic AI companion and some of the gadgets sound super cool. I thoug Grey is pretty confident he can solve any case that comes his way.

    Mixing the genres of noir detective with time travel results in a delicious blend of ingredients. This was a fun quick read.

    Back & Forth I did not care for the writing style of this book, or the back and forth from different time zones. The over attention to some details, like the dress of main character did not appeal to me. Some people like this style and that's great, just not for me. Not an author I would read again.

    If you laugh out loud while perusing a book on your phone it is probably a sign of good writing. I had a bit of nostalgia while reading Time of Death thinking it was in some sections reminiscent of conversations between Tony Stark and Jarvis in the Marvel Iron Man movies. Other times I drew a parallel to the expert confidence of James Bond questioning the leading ladies or baddies for information. Who doesn't enjoy a good-looking, sarcastic, quick-witted, slightly dark hero a la Ryan Reynolds in If you laugh out loud while perusing a book on your phone it is probably a sign of good writing.

Who doesn't enjoy a good-looking, sarcastic, quick-witted, slightly dark hero a la Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool? What I enjoyed most about Time of Death was how it was presented in a stylish manner with very cool imagined or yet to be invented tech, while still being relevant to current times. Greyson Travers enjoys a good drink as much as the next hardworking P.I. and I can relate to that. He thinks creatively and outsmarts the dimwits who work for an interesting antagonist. I enjoyed the side characters and sidekicks a close second and third to our protagonist. Having some pretty great end of chapter dialogue with his A.I. or his inner monologue causes you to keep scrolling or turning the pages. I like when I have a hard time putting a book down to come back to reality. I was trying to watch something somewhat important on TV and started reading during commercial breaks but found myself missing the actual event due to reading past my intended stopping point. I did have familiarity with the ancillary characters from reading the prior books by the author but I can honestly say this book could easily stand on its own for a first time reader. In fact this book fast became my new favorite. There are a few easter eggs that spoke to me and I am excited to discuss them with friends who will be reading it next. Van Coops continues to entertain and expand the universe for his fans and it just keeps getting better.

    In this book you get to meet Benjamin Travis's son. He's a detective, and also a time traveller. In this book he's hired to investigate a death, if it is a suicide or a murder. He uses time travel to investigate, and comes across some interesting characters as a part of the investigation. His clients don't know he's a time traveller, which he uses to his advantage. The book is written in the usual van Coops style; whitty, fast paced, interesting and well written. It's one that you read well past In this book you get to meet Benjamin Travis's son.

    Nathan Van Coops does it again. While I’m itching for another story about Benjamin Travers, getting a story about one version of his son, Greyson is pretty satisfying. I’ll be honest, I’m not really a big fan of detective stories anymore. But, I do enjoy Science-Fantasy. So I was not really sure where I was going to fall on this one beforehand.

Greyson Travers and his AI Sidekick, Waldo, traveling back and forth in time to solve cases for Travers Private Investigations business, might just be what was missing. I was hooked from the beginning. I want this to be a spoiler free review, and the book is not very long, so I canI say too much without giving things away. I thought I had figured out who did what, where, and how pretty early, but I was wrong. Nathan Van Coops is talented in a way I don’t usually see from writers. Every single book seems to fit in a different genre. Mystery, Action/Adventure with Zombies, Race against Time, Historical, the Afterlife(?), Alternate History, and now Detective. I’m impressed with each book, and I’d really love to see the series bible that he uses to maintain the timelines. I absolutely look forward to getting more Greyson stories. And since I listen almost exclusively to the audiobooks, I also review the narrators. If the reading is bad, I’ll never make it through. Stacy Carolan’s presentation is probably in my top 10 of audiobooks. He doesn’t hiss or whistle when he speaks the letter “S.” He doesn’t do annoying voices. And he sounds like he’s Greyson himself, and not just someone reading the story. Neil Hellegers was perfect as Benjamin Travers throughout the *In Times Like These* series, and Carolan just slides right in to voice Greyson. He really does sound like he could be his grown up son. Maybe that sounds weird, but it really does enhance the story. All in all, I am very pleased with this book. If you like Time Travel, Detectives, AI, or Whodunits, then you need to pick this up. I was given a code by the author for a free book in exchange for a review, but that did not effect my rating.

Altogether, Time of Death is a wonderful mix of time travel and classic detective story that I would recommend to everyone who enjoys either one of those genres.

Together with his AI assistant and a box of tricks from the future, he has the edge on any human investigator. So when he finds evidence of more to the recent life and death of the victim, he knows he is up against forces with powers to match his own. Along the way we learn bits about the parallel world of time travellers, and get hints that there is more to discover in Greyson’s family history, presumably to be revealed later in the series. I found this a quick and enjoyable read, with an enigmatic MC, clever time travel details, a decent mystery, and some nice touches of humour.

    Interesting premise, the start of good world building and characters. The storyline (as a mystery) was eh.. I honestly was expecting more. So good on the urban fantasy side but a letdown on the mystery aspect (that part wasn't terrible, I just thought it was .. nothing amazing. I wasn't expecting Val McDermid or Jonathan Kellerman level mystery - it didn't seem like that kind of series - BUT I was hoping it was on par with a Dan Willis/Arcane Casebook or Orlando Sanchez/Montague and Strong type Interesting premise, the start of good world building and characters.

Or Peter Clines "Paradox Bound"). Hopefully this will improve as the series continues, the ingredients are definitely there. Tl;Dr: good ingredients for an amazing series, just thought the mystery aspect was underdone. (Also, there was a weird sentence: "her lips tasted like sex". What?.. Sweaty? Since I have read that weird, Jamie Thornton Doormaker series, I have a low tolerance for metaphors and similes.)

The layering is the inclusion of the fourth dimension in the normal course of finding the killer and, as the title suggests, the actual Time of Death. Private detective Greyson Travers is part of the Travers family (no spoilers here) but there is only a brief reference to his older sister Piper and the rest of the family. This is a novel that can be enjoyed without any knowledge of the other books in this universe, but reading them does provide some background that helps.

    Time traveling detective story! Greyson Travers, son of Ben and Mym Travers is a detective in the old school/noire style but he's updated the whole thing by being able to travel in time.

    I'm wary about books and movies that include time travel because it's very easy to abuse it, leaving the reader perplexed about what's happening. In this book, however, the author strikes a great balance in using time travel complexities in just the right amount and for the right purposes - it makes the novel exciting and twists the plot in a great way.

    For fans of time travel books, the In Times Like These series is a must. This is set in the same universe and is the story of Greyson Travers a time traveling detective. You would think that would allow him to solve cases really easily but it is a bit harder if the bad guys are also time travelers. This one is a quick read and stands on it’s own if you haven’t read the series. I still suggest starting with In Times Like These and reading the trilogy to better understand the nuances of the story.

    This was a quick, engaging read. Much darker than what I’m used to with this author but, it was a pleasant change! Along with the dark comes a healthy dose of humor and wit. VanCoops never fails to write characters that feel very real and the good guys come with a lot of heart! I’m honestly surprised at how long it took me to figure out what was going on so, bravo to the author for keeping me guessing and on my toes. Really enjoyable, fast paced read.

    The most original dective novel I have everread I purchased TIME OF DEATH at the recommendation of Alan Lee, author of the wonderful MacKenzie August and Sinatra series. I wasn't disappointed. Nathan Van Coops has crafted an amazingly original premise for a great new series of detective novels that are a must read for any devoté of the genre. I can't wait for the next volume in the series.

    “I almost killed you,” he muttered. “And now you’re giving me marriage advice?” “Tried to kill me. Let’s not give you too much credit.” I pocketed my phone. “And it turns out I’m a romantic. Who knew.” Greyson Travers!! None other than Ben's son. He's a time travelling P.I full of sarcasm. Absolutely loved this, loved Greyson, loved the story! With a couple of cheeky nods to the In Times Like These Faves 👌🏻 highly recommend this, especially if you're a fan of the Travers. “I almost killed you,” he muttered. “And now you’re giving me marriage advice?” “Tried to kill me.

    Van Coops creates a complete and "logical" time traveling world and places his private investigator in the midst of it in a way that creates an excellent mystery as well. This is a quick and fun read with a conflicted P.I. (of course) and a milieu that promises many ways to confound and delight us readers. I've also bought his earlier series set in the same world (I think) and plan on visiting them as soon a I finish Electric Midnight (Paradox P.I. #2).

    This is a spinoff from a series I heard several years ago and loved. I'm always excited when I see something new from Nathan Van Coops. Stacy Carolan did a fantastic job of filling Neil Hellegers' shoes as narrator of this series. Their narration styles are similar, but not identical, which works perfectly as this series is about the son of the previous series' main character.
