    This was an exciting read! I really like the premise of the book and the beginning of it was really captivating as well. I do wish I got more about the mind-reading, even though it served more as a tool to solve the crime/mystery. Interesting nonetheless.

    2 starsOh, dear. Though this book has an awesome title, a very profesional cover and an intriguing premise, its negatives sink its one positive.The only positive being that the plot is well done. We've got a whole bunch of elements that the author managed to logically tie together. For the most part, the plot was always moving forward. However, on the other end, all these elements are missing this cohesive glue to really get them to mesh. It really just feels like a bunch of mismatched ideas for [...]

    Fabulous story amazing topic to write about wonderfully written plus the characters where a lively bunch. A well thought out story enjoyed reading this story very much this book is for my fabulous shelf. My thanks to the author AL Macy for the privilege and the wonderful pleasure of reading this wonderful book I would be delighted to recommend this wonderful book to my friends so as always happy reading to all from wee me. ♥☺☺

    This will be my last review of 77 books read for 2017, twelve books over my planned goal of 65. I would have loved to exit 2017 with a blockbuster but the book as only okay. I thought this book to be a couple of characters looking for a plot. However, the book did allow me to complete an ABC reading challenge of reading 26 books beginning with a different letter of the alphabet.The protagonist of this novel is Eric Beckman, former neuroscientist and current private investigator. The impetus for [...]

    For me this story started off great but then it became a little too zany for me. There was also a strong romance element that I didn't really care for. It was not a bad story, it just was not something that I really enjoyed reading.

    The opening scene grabs your attention and makes you wonder why? From there the story continued to be interesting and became a very quick read. It was interesting having a PI that can read thoughts, because when he'd ask someone a question and they'd think the truthful answer but verbally give a lie - made for some funny scenes. If there's ever a sequel I'd probably read it, since I really enjoyed this book.4.5 stars

    I thoroughly enjoyed this twist on time travel. With a unique storyline, fleshed-out characters and solid writing, this is definitely one I'd recommend to anyone who likes Sci-Fi, mysteries, gritty detectives and / or fast paced stories with realistic characters.

    Yesterday's Thief, Eric Beckman #1by Al MacyI came upon this series when I was putting together my annual Christmas reading list. On it was the novel, "The Mind Reader's Christmas," the 4th book in the series. I enjoyed it, so decided to backtrack to book #1, which was already on my Kindle. This series combines two paranormal styles: the ability to hear others' thoughts (like Sookie Stackhouse) and the ability to time travel. It is set slightly in the future, with this novel, published in 2016, [...]

    A satisfying read - light and tastyThe author captures a fulfilling sense of whimsy throughout the story. Enough back story is given to set the required scenery and plot in motion.The author describes the science enough to get over the bumps that are present in a way that does not detract but adds to the storyline. Not to give away any spoilers, this is the first novel I have read that treats the plot devices in this manner - and presents logical reasoning to support them.The character and plot [...]

    A Private Investigator who can “hear” the thoughts of others. A naked woman who appears “out of thin air” at Home Plate on a televised ballgame. A bizarre kidnapping. A suicide attempt gone wrong. And a near future (2020) where things are changing even faster than they are now. An interesting mix of plot elements that will keep you turning the pages. As a bonus, there is a free download of “Yesterday’s Thief Technical Notes” that gives interesting insights into the author’s sanit [...]

    Hm, preco autor, ktory vyda knihu v r. 2016, da dej knihy do buducnosti do r. 2020??? Nechapem, vsak je to za rohom.Ok, Erik je vysetrovatel, ktory ma schopnost citat myslienky. Super, nie? Jedneho dna vidi v telke, ze sa pocas zapasu zrazu z nicoho nic objavi naha zena na ihrisku - cestovala v case. Erik sa snazi vysetrit, kto to je, ale to, ze ona je v kome a ma myslienky v inom jazyku, mu nepomaha :slight_smile: Nakoniec sa preberie, on sa do nej zalubi, zisti, ze je to profesionalna zlodejka [...]

    Available Kindle Unlimited but I got it free through library thing same as the other one Sanity's Thief. . Odd story, enjoyable but odd, very odd. Held my attention and all, just a bit confusing here and there so unsure whether that was the writing or the reading of it to be totally fair as sometimes read with kindle for pc and sometimes let audio take over with those programs.date is off because noticed had done amazon but not here

    (3.5)A fun, quick read. Not a lot of actual detecting happens on the part of our PI sleuth protagonist, and a side quest involving a missing person has no impact whatsoever on the main story, but it's still a fast-moving good time. And the mystery woman, Viviana, is a hoot. Worth reading just for her.

    Liked the book. The premise of a mind reading PI was interesting. Kind of a dark look at the future but entirely possible with energy and global warming issues. Will be looking forward to the next installment of Eric’s story.

    Fun story and interesting characters. I kept picturing Peggy in my head while reading about her and it was amusing. I'll say no more on that, haha! I would have liked a little more story though. I feel like I burned through it really fast. Overall good though.

    Enjoyable I enjoyed this book, as I have others that Al Macy has written. The characters are well developed and interesting. The story flowed well and kept me interested beyond the end.

    A good read!A well written, fast paced story that had my attention from the start. Looking forward to the next book ☺

    Wow!I loved this book so much I have to stop writing this and go pick up the next book right now!FWIW I read 200+ books a year and don't leave reviews for books I don't enjoy.

    Actually a pretty good sci-fi thriller. It has limited time traveling and lots of mind reading. For a book under 200 pages, the characters are OK (private detective, ultra fit jewel thief, plus a number of interesting secondary ones) and the storyline is exciting and engaging. Set place in the near future, the technology supplements the plot and doesn't distracts. Sense of humor is a plus too. A good indie author to watch in the future.

    What do a P.I, a deputy policeman, and a neurosurgeon have in common? The P.I has a secret that the neurosurgeon knows about, and the policeman has a hunch about.The year is 2020 in San Francisco. Many things have changed, many things have advanced. Earthquakes are abundant, and there are mandatory power outages. Some things never change though, a mysterious woman (Viviana) has appeared during a baseball game with her pinky embedded in the umpire's skull. From the start of Yesterday's Thief, you [...]

    A fun read SOME SPOILERSThis one was interesting. Well-written, good concept, darker future but not completely hopeless (which I appreciated - I really don't like reading about total apocalypse futures). I liked the male lead, Eric, and felt I could have liked his assistant, Peggy -- if only I'd gotten to know her better. She isn't very present in the book, though, as the reader mostly gets to know her through Eric's thoughts and a few conversations with him. The female lead, Viviana, was a bit [...]

    Yesterday's Thief by Al Macy is a wonderful sci-fi, paranormal, fun adventure novel that keeps moving at a quick pace. It's full of humor, time travel, intrigue, danger, action, and a bit of romance. The story caught and held me right away when the characters in the book are watching a ball game on TV and a naked lady appears behind home plate in thin air, live broadcast, and her and the umpire collapse together on the field. If that doesn't catch your attention, what will? She was laying as if [...]

    The worst thing I can say about this book is that it's done and I want more! There is a little bit of everything you could want in a story: action, suspense, science fiction, love, and mystery. The characters are well thought out, and enjoyable to follow. The plot keeps you guessing and moves along quickly to keep the reader entertained. Characters: The characters are well thought out and developed. I really enjoyed that they’re easy to relate to despite having special powers or special talent [...]

    Yesterday's ThiefThis is a very good standalone with lots of twists and turns, a geeky PI, a mysterious Moldovan, and a paranoid scientist with a potential answer to the world's energy crisis. It's well worth the read time. What happens when you dematerialize as you travel through time and rematerialize in contact with another person? It's the year 2020 and Eric Beckman, PhD and Private Investigator, is watching a baseball game on television with two friends, a police sergeant and a neurosurgeon [...]

    Eric Beckman is a private investigator with a bit of an edge. He can read minds, well at least the conscious thoughts of others. When a woman appears out of thin air during a televised baseball game, he lands the case of a lifetime. Now all he has to do is figure out where, or is it when, that she is from. The opening scene grips you from the very beginning, automatically making you want to know more. The story is well set up and the plot is executed nicely. The characters were awesome. The main [...]

    Yesterday's Thief revolves around P.I Dr. Eric Beckman, who has a doctorate in neurobiology and also happens to be able to read minds. Only one person knows his secret his college friend and neurosurgeon and use his friends skill to help find out things about coma patients. Eric is called in to consult when I women materialised in the middle of a baseball field in the middle of a game. This starts the journey into time travel, jewelrey thief, and a world where there is a shortish of electrify.Th [...]

    “Yesterday’s Thief” by Al Macy is a young adult, sci-fi novel about a private investigator named Eric who can read minds and attempts to solve crimes. What Eric doesn’t anticipate is trying to solve the mysterious appearance of a naked woman in the middle of a televised baseball game – and so the time traveling plot thickens, developing into a fairly cute love story.It’s always interesting to see and read about how someone envisions the future. In Al Macy’s case, it’s a bleak wor [...]

    Some charm, but mostly falls flatI picked up this book as my Kindle Lending Library selection for May because the premise sounded promising and it had rave reviews with key words like "humor, wit, funny, charm, and entertaining." While I did find some charm in the way the characters interacted (I'm a sucker for people with nice friends), I mostly found this book to fall flat and short of expectations (maybe my expectations were too high?). The story itself is interesting--time travelling jewel t [...]

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It mixes in a private investigator who can read minds with a Romanian beautiful jewel thief and her brilliant uncle who both have traveled in time forty years. Viviana suddenly appears at a baseball game with her pinkie finger embedded in the head of the umpire, and the story proceeds from there. Combining a PI story with sci-fi is fun for me because I really like both genres.The writing style has a little humor and is written in a very enjoyable and relaxed s [...]
