Lots of twists and turns in this book. Keeps you guessing, but I think I like the Andy Carpenter novels better.

Hmm. Another one of those books where the reader needs to put their common sense on a shelf while reading it. I love the Andy Carpenter series but On Borrowed Time didn't do it for me. There were parts I definitely enjoyed reading. I just never really fell in love with the characters, or the plot.

I continue to be delighted by this author. I love his humor, and all of the books by him so far have kept me coming back for more. I think he has great character development, enough twists to the plot to keep it interesting, and I am usually still guessing almost to the end. When he gives away the "who did it", it's even more interesting to follow the threads until all the folks involved catch up as well. I definitely encourage anyone looking for non-gory criminal fiction to give this author a try!

Richard Kilmer is a journalist who has found the woman of his dreams but is it for real or fantasy....I got through this book but never felt connected....pretty disappointing

A good thriller! Kept you guessing right up until the end

Not a Andy Carpenter main character but still a very good read. It keeps moving right along and is hard to put down.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "A unique story about mind control with lots of twists and turns. It keeps you reading to find out the real truth and what is happening until the last page."

Had me guessing right up to the end. Terrific book.

Fast-paced and humorous as his books usually are. More riveting than usual, but the end wraps up a little too quickly - leaves you wishing that after such a great book he'd drawn out the ending a bit more.
