    Last year I read the last Sue Grafton in the alphabet series and was disappointed Turns out she had a terminal illness so I feel bad for my critical review I don t think Cornwell has that excuse It s been a long time since I read a Patricia Cornwell mystery, but I remember them as fast paced with interesting characters Quantum has none of those qualities.This story centers on a pair of twin sisters, narrated by one of them, both of whom are clearly on the autism spectrum The whole book is a Last year I read the last Sue Grafton in the alphabet series and was disappointed Turns out she had a terminal illness so I feel bad for my critical review I don t think Cornwell has that excuse It s been a long time since I read a Patricia Cornwell mystery, but I remember them as fast paced with interesting characters Quantum has none of those qualities.This story centers on a pair of twin sisters, narrated by one of them, both of whom are clearly on the autism spectrum The whole book is a mishmash of technobabble and paranoia with a few mysterie...

    The story, while OK , is unfortunately marred by one of the most insufferable characters I ve encountered in a book The protagonist is the very epitome of an iamverysmart who has studied or developed every field of science, every technology implementation and suffers from every conventional quirk that they can think of, and who has the habit of pointless extemporizations and diatribes for no real reason other than to demonstrate their iamverysmart ness Captain Calli is an action hero as we The story, while OK , is unfortunately marred by one of the most insufferable characters I ve encountered in a book The protagonist is the very epitome of an iamverysmart who has studied or developed every field of science, every technology implementation and suffers from every conventional quirk that they can think ...

    So Captain Calli Chase, besides being an active duty military officer and a NASA pilot, is somehow also a quantum physicist and a cybercrime investigator Yes, that seems very realistic and totally believable.

    Frustrating and DisappointingFirst let me say that I have always enjoyed this author s previous work, and looked forward to reading this new series The animated section heading each section was awesome, and I m sure the hard copies will look dull by comparison The high tech described was fun and imaginative But although the character development for Captain Chase was quite good, the development of her sister, parents, and former boss Dick was sketchy and didn t allow me to care about any of t Frustrating and DisappointingFirst let me say that I have always enjoyed this author s previous work, and looked forward to reading this new series The animated section heading each section was awesome, and I m sure the hard copies will look dull by comparison The high tech described was fun and imaginative But although the character development for Captain Chase was quite good, the development of her sister, parents, and former boss Dick was sketchy and didn t allow me to care about any of them very much The story line was initially interesting, as were the flashbacks to childhood, which were used to help us understand the family dynamics But their frequency interrupted the flow of the story, and negated the tension that should have been building throughout the book But most frustrating was that only one threatening situation ...
