Kurzbeschreibung

Long Beach, California, homicide detective Danny Beckett is pouring the weekend’s first shot of vodka when the call comes in: Elizabeth Williams, a teacher at nearby Warren High School, has been brutally murdered in her classroom. When Danny arrives at the school, the blood-spattered crime scene turns even his veteran stomach. What could this young woman have done to make her the target of such a violent attack? And what is the significance of the victim’s left hand, taken by the killer as a grisly trophy? Beckett delves into the case with his usual tenacious cool, yet as he pieces together the facts, long-suppressed anguish from his own past rises up with stunning force. His hunt for the murderer soon morphs into a personal quest for atonement as he struggles to come to terms with the loss of his wife and family. A King of Infinite Space is a riveting crime novel that serves as a memorable introduction for Danny Beckett to the ranks of fiction’s favorite hardened detectives.

4.0 von 5 Sternen You don't have to come from Long Beach 6. Februar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Although it was fun to be able to follow the cop through downtown and along PCH because I come from Long Beach myself, there was very much else to enjoy. I fell for the prologue and swallowed line and sinker, and this policeman's sassiness and self-mockery granted me many diverse pleasures right through to the end of this well-woven yarn.

I wasn't sure what to expect here - and was positively surprised.
The book keeps moving, the characters are believable, the language is fluid, I only noticed one minor continuity error (and I tend to notice these quite readily). The only thing that irked me is that a cop would be buying a top-shelf (56$/bottle) Vodka to mix down with Orange Juice, but whatever.

I read this on the Kindle, so it's difficult to say wether its rather short physically, but I plowed through this in no time (vacation read).

Absolutely recommend it to anyone over 16.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nicely done, low-key potboiler 23. Juni 2010
Von Doc Occula - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
'A King of Infinite Space' may have Shakespearean pretensions in its title, but in actuality it's a pleasant, quick-reading cop thriller set in sunny Long Beach. With a ramshackle cast of quip-happy characters led by a troubled (of course) detective, the author does an efficient job of winding up his story of a murdered, beloved teacher to a nice nail-biting pitch. I rather wish we'd learned more about the LBC underbelly - the city is, after all, a weird balance between wealthy beachfront and the worst gang activity in Los Angeles - but it was good enough to entertain me on a cross-country flight. It was certainly the best AmazonEncore book I've read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen AKoIS: Best Book of the Year 19. Juni 2009
Von Alicia Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Tyler Dilts has created a masterpiece with his debut detective novel, A King of Infinite Space. Set in Long Beach, California, Detective Danny Beckett and Jen Tanaka must solve the case of a brutally-murdered English teacher. Through painful mastery of image, dream, characterization, and story telling, Tyler Dilts excels at showing the effects that murder cases have on the detectives investigating them. Using sadness as a measure for goodness, Dilts explores characters in a way that is true, whole, and touches deep down into the reality of a person. I highly recommend A King of Infinite Space not only to anyone who loves reading mystery novels but to anyone who can empathize with pain, loss, and the haunting quality of dreams.

5.0 von 5 Sternen In A Nutshell 1. Juli 2009
Von O. Zahzah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
It has been my experience that the mystery genre and all of its corresponding sub-genres, even in what seems to be a relatively progressive present, still suffer from the stigma of being considered somehow less "literary" than other works. I'm hard pressed to say exactly what this means, but whenever the claim is made or even implied I find it is derived, at least partially, from the assumption that genre fiction is more of a distraction from than a response to/direct treatment of the "weightier" issues of the human condition. Tyler Dilts' book effectively discredits such a conviction by presenting us with realistic, compelling characters whose depth and intelligent execution resonate powerfully with the reader from the first page; later, it is not frilly formulaic convention which carries the story along, but the natural evolution of the charactrs and situation, which in turn leads to the powerful realization that the world Dilts has created is not so very different from our own--is closer to it, in fact, than the countless epic sagas of the trials and tribulations of wounded upper-middle class family dynamics faux-literary snobbery would have us accept as more accurate treatments of the implications of life in contemporary society.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent read 21. Juni 2009
Von Wendy Levins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I loved this book. The characters are richly developed, the procedural details are interesting and I know the area where the action takes place quite well, as does the author. All of this takes a back seat to a well written, exciting story. I would recommend this book to mystery lovers everywhere. I just hope it becomes a series (hint, hint).

4.0 von 5 Sternen Loved It! 2. Dezember 2010

A King of Infinite Space by Tyler Dilts

This is Tyler Dilts' debut novel featuring homicide detectives Danny Beckett and Jen Tanaka.
The novel opens with the vicious death of a high school teacher. Not only is there a murder to be solved, but Dilts peels away the layers of his lead protagonist, Danny Beckett. Still tormented by the death of his wife, we get an inside look at Beckett and what motivates him.
Not only was the murder mystery engaging but the relationship between the detectives and the whole department was something I hadn't read before and it was refreshing. It was what pulled me into the story and kept me there.
Even though I could tell "who done it" before the ending, I enjoyed the ride and was really taken with the characters because Dilts personalizes them and makes them real, interesting and more than what meets the eye.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in the Beckett series.
