Things are going rather well for Eli and even for his partner, Wayne, but the latest case they’ve been put on seems to be taking things to a whole new level. What should have been a simple robbery has turned into something out a movie with no possible way to identify the suspect, something that should be simple in a time where everyone is equipped with microchips of their entire identity. But somehow this crook is staying one step ahead of them and it seems that their victim, an unassuming advertising agent, was involved in something more than simply coming up with a new campaign for the local religious organizations, but what was it? You’ll find out in Nothing Happens All The Time.
This book was really good at combining a lot of futuristic elements with the basics. Rather than the reader feeling like they’ve been thrown into an entirely different world they know nothing about, the author chose to keep a plot line, characters, and a lot of other effects that were really something you would expect from police in current times, and threw in some futuristic elements like advanced technology. Of course, the characters themselves were relatable and interesting to learn about as well, and I liked the way that the plot developed. You got to see inside the mind of more than one of the characters and you get a humanistic side of the entire story rather than just seeing them as police doing their job. Nothing Happens All The Time by Edmund Mahon is a good book and one I would recommend.
