Seattle is my home and the backdrop of many of my books. I am not a detective, or a zombie, or living in an alternate version of the 21st Century, so my life and my books pretty much just overlap with the Seattle thing. If you like detectives, zombies, alternate histories, even Seattle, you might like my books. I do. I like you. There, I said it.
I’ve written over a dozen books, including the aforementioned ones about detectives and zombies and alternate histories. Did I mention Seattle? Seattle's in some of them, too.

This review is long overdue, but I'm afraid I've had a lot of demands on my time.
As with his Zompunk books, I could NOT get enough of The Raft! I'm not usually a fan of murder mysteries but this entire story was something that felt fresh and new. And the idea of the raft itself, as well as their idea of currency, was fascinating to think about.
The entire two days it took me to read this book, I kept telling everyone I know that they had to read it too and I will continue to recommend his work to everyone I know.
Soon as I get some MORE free time I plan to start The Cordwainer!

A barefoot detective? Sherlock-like story, in a near-future semi-utopian universe. Wow, that's new, at least to me. Lastly, I correctly guess the culprit(s), but the motives are way beyond me; five stars! PS: 'Bailwick' is cool too!
