A 3rd Time to Die by George A Bernstein
A 3rd Time to Die by George A Bernstein
4.0 out of 5 stars The Star Crossed Lovers, April 8 2014
The plot of 3rd Time to Die is certainly not unique. I can remember coming across the scenario of a group of souls being reincarnated into successive lives at least a couple of time in the dim and distant past, on one occasion the story being told over a whole series of books.

Some of his ill wishers prefer to attack him in the business sense, but there are others out… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Tale, April 6 2014
Independently published books, as I would presume this is, come in all shapes and sizes. I read quite a lot of them. Most have something of merit although sadly a few are just dire. Every once in a while you come across a real little gem and I thought this was certainly one of them. I am quite surprised that this has not been picked up by a traditional publisher.

We first meet Floss, our heroine, in the prologue, literally hanging in the air and in some peril. Naturally, we do not find out what is going on until much later, towards the end. Floss and her friend, Penny, run a private investigation agency. Suddenly, after a run of occasional, mundane jobs, they land two interesting… Read more
