A book review by Evelyn C. Leeper

Copyright 1997 Evelyn C. Leeper

At first, this sounded like a really cobbled-together idea--a werewolf detective in a future of a world-wide dictatorship (the United World Government). But strangely enough, it works.

Ty Merrick is a detective in a rather run-down future, or at least run-down for the masses of the people. The rich are. of course, still rich. The title might make you think this book uses some high-tech physics concept, but it's really just a reference to a new drug called quantum. Okay, so that makes this just another drug-running story, and telling any more of the story is perhaps unnecessary, but the twist of having the detective be a werewolf, and a female werewolf at that, gives it just enough of a twist to make it worth reading. It's not great, but as a first novel it shows promise.
