In Retrospect The reviews are in! Wow!
[A] carefully crafted whodunit . . . shifting timelines clearly notated in chapter headings and technological/theoretical discussions that readers can skim or chew over with equal enjoyment should make this speculative fiction mystery accessible to all closed-room murder fans. –Publishers Weekly STARRED
[T]he story has a hidden subtext—although, we also realize, there were lots of hints—and the novel is vastly different from what we thought it would be. A cleverly structured mix of science fiction and mystery. –Booklist
Frequent shifts of time and place...require constant reorientation...in Larson's gripping novel. Merit's attitude is fueled by adrenaline, antipsychotics, and an intense hatred of the enemy.... Soon, treachery within the ranks leads to unexpected consequences. -Romantic Times Book Review - Four Stars
Review Murder in the far future has a time traveler seeking answers in the recent past . . . will Merit choose to challenge her values for the sake of her family and crew, or is the past too far out of reach? Twisty plot . . –Kirkus
Compelling. Intriguing. Fascinating.... You are drawn quickly into Merit Rafi's world from the prologue--such a compelling opening for this story (written in future tense--very rare). You just can't help turning the pages.... [T]he choices [Merit] makes (whether good or bad) lead toward an astounding climax that rocks you in your seat.... It is definitely gritty, and a bit steamy in a place or two but not graphic.... Do not plan on getting much sleep while reading this book, you won't be able to put it down. –Upon Reflection, Christian Writings Reviewed
