More About the Author

M.F. Soriano got his first job at the age of twelve. In the more than two decades that have passed since then, he's worked as a nurseryman in a tree farm, a deckhand on a tall ship, a front desk receptionist in a psychological services center. He's been a bartender in Britain, an English teacher in Spain, and a drummer for a rock band in Mexico. Through it all, ever since he first sat down and actually thought of what he wanted to do for a living, he's wanted to be a writer.

While it sounds like an oxymoron - the book is great. I just did not like it. There is nothing to take issue with. The writing is excellent. Editing is excellent. The characters were well fleshed. There was a complete and well developed plot. Many people will enjoy this tale. Especially those who like futuristic and noir genres. This is not my cup of tea is all. That is solely personal reflection and not related to any shortfall of book. Hence the 5 stars as they were justifiably earned.

Mr. Broma must be something of a joker, as his protagonist in this retro noir detective novelette is named Dashiell, after Dashiell Hammett, the author of detective novels who pretty much defined the genre. Chain-smoking, hard-boiled, gun-toting (and this in a future world where guns are no longer permitted!), the Dashiell of this story even has a young female assistant, whom I picture to be at least as attractive as those on TV. In fact, this story would be great on TV, right down to its surprise ending. A great read. Kudos to the cover illustrator, too, for cleverly catching the essence of the story.

A detective novel with science fiction elements. It's dark with twists that seized my curiosity. The first offering from Don Broma shows this author has promise. I look forward to more from him.

This was a great little mystery science fiction tale.

It's like Raymond Chandler and Philip K. Dick decided to get together and write a story. It's a quick read, with great suspense and shows great promise from a new author. Looking forward from the next one from Broma!

I thought this book was wonderful. The author takes murder to a whole new level. I recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery, noir or police books.
Great book.
