Summary

Scott McKenzie's father killed his mother and himself. Scott vowed to do anything in his power to stop similar murders.

He longed to be a police officer, but a tour in Vietnam in 1970 derailed that career. Two years later, wounded in body and soul, Scott died. He didn't go on to what was next, though. Instead, he woke up with a chance to live his life over and over until he got it right.

Murderers will never see him coming.

But, by using violence to save others, is he losing his own soul?

Includes a special bonus note read by the author.

Decent story, well performed

MacLeod Andrews does a good performance throughout. Even a creditable if not accurate John Lennon.

The story of a man who on recycling has life decides to make the world better by killing of serial murderers is quite neatly done. Similar to the previous books years pass in a few paragraphs.

The "killing Hitler" moral arguments are of the pre-crime nature. The good of the many outweighs the... you know the rest.

A bit of Japanese jo stick fighting was new to me. It's worth a credit

Another great novel

Finished this last night. Another superb book in the Middle Falls series. Can’t say too much because of spoilers but it is easily up to the standard of the others. I was trying to think if I had a favourite........but I simply don’t
So glad Mr Inmon changed his mind and has decided to write another Middle Falls novel after this one

Another Great Addition to the Series

It still amazes me how well the characters get woven together between the various books in a subtle way. Please never end this series! ~ JTC ~

Reading in order and felt like I needed to review this one

I have loved all the middle fall books but I have to say that this one was a let down for me. If you are listening to these all back to back I would take a break before starting this one. Spoiler of Previous book alert!!!
A large majority of The middle and end of Joe Hart centered around John Lennon and stopping the murder and working with Scott on the oasis for veterans. I get it was a nice way to Segway to this book, but by the time that you get halfway through this book, it’s stsrts feeling the Joe Hart book but with an alternative ending. They were too Intertwined to be given Separate books. That’s why I feel like that if you wait a month or so before starting this one, you might not get as burnt out as I did. I also feel like he spent a lot of time explaining the morality of what he was doing but feel like he could have went a little more darker. Maybe catching a killer in the act with a little more detail and horror to make us really want to kill these people.

He has crossed over other books more successfully. I just feel like this book was a Fun premise that was forced into a book without a lot of substance other than Lining up people to kill.

Make this a Netflix series already!!

We were first introduced to Scott Mckenzie in "The Changing Lives of Joe Hart". But the foreshadowing in that book did not by any means ruin this book or provide any spoilers. Both are great stand alone books. I am enjoying listening to them in order though. Narration of this book was great.

Scott survives a horrific incident as a child as well as the Viet Nam war. He survives, but does not thrive. His life is re-set over two dozen times before he starts to learn and grow. Unfortunately, his re-set occurs at a very low time in his life...he has returned state side with very painful war wounds and loses his grandmother just days later. Scott finally determines that his purpose is to prevent the suffering of victims of horrific crimes such as he experienced and to prevent the killing sprees of several notorious serial killers. He is very much a time traveling vigilante. But the question arises...is it okay if someone ends up killing more than the serial killers he is stopping?

This is probably one of my favorite Middle Falls books. It is the most action filled, so far. I also loved the fact that one of Scott's first cars was a Plymouth Valiant. My first car was also a Plymouth Valiant (a later model than his) and I had many of the same mechanical problems that Scott did. Sort of makes me feel like Mr. Inmon did some great research or has a little experience with this car. I also loved Scott's final assignment...hoping to see more of him in future Middle Falls books!

Action and emotion, Wrings your heart and brain

The character's-beauty marks and figurtive warts- keep the reader hooked not to mention, the sharp, twisting, speeding moral "gauntlet" the reader is shoved through with the story characters makes the adventure "real". I have one caveat, with teen suicide an epidemic, that the author state clearly dead is dead; there are no do-overs and no reset points.

Each Book Is Better Than The Last!

I'm completely obsessed with this series!
I love the way the books link into each other and you gey to see thing's from multiple angles.
MacLeod Andrews is one of my favourite narrator's so I'd give him a zillion stars if I could! I'm so happy that I have a lot more books to listen to after this one ends!

continues to be an excellent series

As many others, I love this series! (with the exception of thr 4th book I could not even get through)
This book is very good and I couldn't get enough! The character is relatable and loved seeing his story after he was briefly introduced in thr last book.

Nice

Sometimes it was a bit long, but as soon as I found myself saying that it would pick up again. I especially enjoyed that bit about Susan Smith.
