Format: Paperback
I have read John Locke's Donovan Creed books before and thought that his other Creed novels could not be topped, but this book had me truly stunned from beginning to end.
It is a book about a disappearance, healing people, revenge and historical background for hidden pirate treasures. All stories woven into a true page turner. What starts off as a modern mystery story, ends up being the story of a rare gift passed down through generations.
As with all John Locke books, the storyline is complex and has multiple plots. This means that the book is describing fast paced action and I caught myself wanting to turn pages quicker and quicker to find the solutions to the mysteries that Locke lays out in this book.
To describe this book as unusual is an understatement, it is by far the wildest mystery novel I have encountered in the last few years. John Locke really outdoes himself in this plot and the surprises woven into the storyline.
This is must read for every John Locke fan, but it is also highly recommended to any fan of a really good mystery story.

First of all, this is my first ever review. I felt it was my duty to at least try to curtail this onslaught of 4+ ratings for these books. I read Lethal People and then Lethal Experiment and couldn't put them down. Great Books !! I then read Saving Rachel and it was .. well .. weird, compared to the first two. I stayed with it and about halfway through the book things started to come together and I ended up enjoying the last half of the book. So I feel I'm doing good .. 3 books, 2 excellent and 1 okay for $3 bucks.

Then I read Now and Then .. wow was this book bad. We go from action hero, good/bad guy with a heart, to ... handyman/cook in a Restaurant. Half of the book is a pirate story that completely unrelated to Creed!!!! This book SHOULD BE SKIPPED. Do yourself a favor!

This book was all over the place and I couldn't wait to get through it so I could move on to Wish List .. but I just read the reviews on that and it appears it has a lot of the same problems this did.

Just wanted to warn other readers out there .. I went and bought the rest of the books in the series after reading the first two ... buy them one at a time, skip Now and Then, and I'll post on Wish List after I'm done with it.

Format: Paperback
A mystery book centered in Florida? NO....impossible. Okay, not really....but this one certainly stands apart from the crowd in typical Donovan Creed fashion. "Now & Then" by John Locke has readers welcoming back this beloved character but not in a shower of emotion....rather another tale of mystery, suspense, and knock your socks off action. Blending a mix of fantasy and reality, author John Locke delivers another great addition to a growing series. If you are new to the series, I'd recommend starting from the top...but this one can still be enjoyed as a stand alone book if you really wanted to. Recommended reading for fans of the mystery and fiction genres. Enough action for the guys and enough story for the girls. A great escape for your next weekend read.....just be sure to fasten your seatbelt and hang on tight.

How the other 1 percent lives. If James Cameron is done making goofy movies and if Hollywood is done with wretched remakes, how about you take a look at this book and consider it for a script? It's a shame that books like these don't ever get considered. With that said, how many books have billionaires assassins and the supernatural?
Great locations and set pieces as well as enough characters to hold you over for some time. I really don't like empathizing with the criminal element, but it's unavoidable here.
I just finished up 'wish list', also by John Locke, and jumped right into this on a plane ride for business, and the stewardess had to ask me what was wrong. I was throbbing with adrenaline and actually got off the plane and sat in the boarding area to finish a section. Great fun.

The Donovan Creed novels should be read in the following order as each discusses to some extent what went before. The order:
Lethal People;
Lethal Experiment
;
Saving Rachel
;
Now and Then.

I figure that the ending of Now and Then will start the next Donovan Creed novel. So be it!

Agree with the others...this was a strange departure from the series. I understand that authors want to change things up from time to time, but it needs to be with different characters. Imagine if James Bond suddenly because a husband, father, and gave bad guys a second chance. Doesn't fit, right? Same here. Creed is not a cook, inn caretaker, etc. He's a hitman! And where does the mystical pirate stuff come from? I get that the series has never been grounded in reality, but now people have healing powers? It was fun while it lasted I guess...

I think John Locke may have written this while HE was in a coma. Love the series, but suggest others just skip over this one. It doesn't seem like it will matter. The book never finishes. Just when the "Now" part gets good, you switch to the "then" and you are bombarded will useless information, so many characters that you can't keep them straight, a little Carrie meets Oliver Twist meets Rawhide, and then guess what happens at the end.....Who the heck knows. It seems to just end, leaving you wondering if you missed something.
