3.50 Stars. This was another solid read by Doyle. This is the fourth book in The Cassie Tam Files. I have read them all and think they all are a strong 3.5 stars. The best way to describe this series would be futuristic mysteries. You can put the sci-fi tag on this but futuristic is a better tag. It’s about 50-60 years in the future and the world has plausible tech for the times. I do want to stress that I think reading this series in order is really important. If you have to skip one, I would ...more

Cassie Tam is back and Matt Doyle has created TWO novellas under one cover, because really, can you ever get enough of Cassie?
A WEEK IN NEW HOPELAND takes on workplace bullying as Lori goes undercover to help Cassie nail the boss who targets female employees for “favors” far beyond propriety. Will Cassie be able to keep Lori safe without tipping their hand?

Once again, Matt Doyle brings just the right amount of fantasy, romance and justice to this latest Cassie Tam tale without going over the

I love Cassie Tam, and I was thrilled to see a new one. It’s a terrific pairing of two separate stories, both of which hit the spot.

First, we get a real treat with a story from Lori’s perspective. Heed the warnings on this one. It’s especially relevant with workplace bullying and harassment continually in the news. Lori proves again just how brave she is. And then she delights us with a reminder that she’s also thoughtful and kind. We get the fast-paced action of taking down the baddie, and then

Well, we're back with our favorite emotional armadillo, AKA Cassie Tam. I've been eagerly awaiting what came next for my favorite PI as of late, and the newest installment did not disappoint. The novella is broken up into two cases, one with Lori as the character we see everything through, and man did the beginning of this one have me grinning like an idiot. There's something special about seeing Lori and Caz's relationship behind closed doors. It's just so...real. Real reservations, real ...more

I love Doyle’s Cassie Tam with all my heart, and was so glad to see more stories here. I enjoyed seeing Cassie through Lori’s eyes in the first story, but absolutely fell into the second short story with Cassie’s latest case, and BERT!! CAW! Cassie’s POV is where Matt Doyle really shines and this little mystery is very cool. I love the cyberpunk world this author has created and the way it allows the author to build some very cool tech related villains. I can’t say too much without spoilers, but ...more

Very nice addition to one of my favorite series: a little bit romance, good mystery and cool near-future sci-fi setting. I liked A Week in New Hopeland (4 stars) a little less. I don’t carry about Lorry as much as for Cassie. And the case, thought raises interesting and important issue, in overall was a bit boring. I see it more as a bonus story, than part of the book. Contrary Shadows of the Past (5.5 stars) I loved. Very strong continuation to story started in previous books. Some answers got ...more
