Title gives away too much, ruins any real potential for surprise other than the why. That said, enjoyed the story. Not entirely sure if there was a problem with the criminal's characterization or if it's just me but there was something that felt off (not discussing to avoid the one spoiler possible due to the story's title). There were a few lines that rung false to my ear, but not so much that it kept me from searching for more work by Jordan Summers. Was temporarily dismayed to see all the bodice rippers (not my cup of tea), but finally figured out it was a different author. Also downloaded "The Last Pirate", look forward to reading it. And while I like free (who doesn't), would have willingly paid the $.99 for it based on "Time Criminal."
