Expiration Date

1 rating: 5.0
A book by Duane Swierczynski

Swierczynski (Severance Package, 2007) originally planned to write this beguiling, pulp-style mix of fantasy and mystery as a magazine serial, but when the New York Times Magazine bowed out of the fiction business, he turned it into a stand-alone novel. … see full wiki

How can he top this?

  • Apr 5, 2010
As a writer who uses his native Philadelphia to tell wonderful and odd stories, Mr. Swierczynski has no equal, and every book he writes is better than the one before. This book is a bit different, since he adds the element of time travel(?) to the plot. The protagonist takes two white pills from the medicine cabinet in his grandfather's apartment, and appears to be transported back to the day of his birth. Further experiments get him back to other dates, but he can't go back beyonf his birth date.

As the son of a man who was murdered, the protagonist naturally is interested in finding the kiler, and perhaps preventing his father's early death. There are twists and turns in this book that can give you a headache they come so fast and furious.

I don't want to go any deeper into the plot, because that would spoil the fun of the thing. Be warned, however; I don't think any reader is going to be able to figure out the whole truth until the author tells it to you.

I love these books, and can't wait for more!
