"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I was given a free copy of this and I am reviewing because of the free copy.
I felt the editing could have been better. Words were missing and a few misspelled words were found. Perhaps because it was an e-book, the editing wasn’t well done.
For me this was way too much like Myron Bolitar and Win. I also didn’t think things were very well defined in the book. Miami just ends up places and you wonder why he made the jump to there. Anyway, that is the way I was reading this. I see retribution for those guys in the book that needed it, like Win does for Myron.
We even had the mob in on this and that didn’t seem to be defined either. We were to assume this?
I am giving this book 3 out of 5 stars. I would have liked more originality. I did like the setting as I do live in Florida. Hopefully the next book will be better and not so much like Harlan Coben.
The Robert B. Parker and Lee Child characters spend time telling the reader what it means to be a bad-ass. Jones is too laid back to be a bad-ass. At the same time, he’s not going to take any more grief than he has to.
Miami Jones doesn’t have Spenser's’ “lit. wit”. Jones is a smart-ass of a different color. He knows he has to play the game. However, his lead is a bit longer than most.
I like the character. Enough to have purchased “Offside Trap”.
I can't say anymore without giving the reader too much info but, there is a turning point in the book where one feels Jones needs to step up to the plate, and he does. I found myself feeling this character deserves resolution more than Jones' client.
I don’t normally bring up typos or anything grammar related. There is always someone around eager enough to tell the world his grammar is better than the author's.
One thing though and I hope it’s a typo. A sentence on page 210, Kindle version, reads, “Hands better suited to light opera then pro football.”
“Then” should be “than”.
These days, “then” is used more and more where “than” should be used.
One sees this so many times, one thinks it’s an epidemic.
I'll let Grammar Girl take over.
""Than" conveys a comparison. "Then" has an element of time. For example, it can mean "next" or "at that time."" From, Mignon Fogarty, Grammar Girl. at Quick and Dirty Tricks, online.
