'A vagrant is caught placing graffiti in front of a building,' Amazon reviewer Cr8aSmile explains. 'As Officer Bentley follows procedure and questions the homeless man, he sets off a chain of events for a group of police officers that will blow your mind.' Reviewer Christy Lynn Allen says 'From outsourced vagrant vandalism, to trigger-happy femme fatale shootings, and raging robots who thirst for blood and barcodes, this was one of the most original stories I've read, and honestly, just good plain fun!'
Many people echoed the sentiments of reviewer Pieter Van Tatenhove, who stated: 'There are many great lines, to be sure, but Critical Incident's true value lies in the series of nightmarish situations he puts his characters in. I'm pretty sure I developed a handful of new phobias while reading this.' People reported bad dreams, including my second-grade teacher (though not on Amazon!).
A few people commented that they read the book in one or two sittings. Many more called it a fast-paced, page-turning, or hard-to-put down book with no 'dead' chapters.
According to the reviews, the mystery will keep you guessing, the thrills will have you on the edge of your seat, and the gripping, graphic, and disturbing events and unexpected, imaginative, and downright crazy characters and situations will hold your attention from beginning to end.
