Publisher's Summary

A routine tax fraud investigation. A strange lab. A mysterious button. 

He shouldn’t have pushed the button. But Alfred Favero, senior analyst with the IRS, pushed the button. And now he’s 67 million years in the past, stranded out of time with a coworker who hates him and a bunch of tax cheats. Oh, and then there’s the other inhabitants of his prehistoric home: the dinosaurs that want to make a meal of him. Things couldn’t get worse. 

Until a mysterious visitor from an uncertain future shows up with murder on his mind.

Turned out pretty good :-)

I found that keeping the narrative between 95-100x worked best to get the sarcasm down. It did take me a few chapters to really get into the story but once I did it kept me engaged. :-)

So, Alfred totally annoyed me at the start, until I started laughing at him. :-D Of. course, Nancy is the back bone & heroine. Therefore, her character is strong which makes Alfred seem weak. Lol, I became annoyed with him in regards to the Marine. ;-)

Good word building, put I'd like a little more depth to the Cretaceous period.

The narrative, a bit distracting & his enunciations were a bit off more so in some places than others. He alone would get a 2.5 out of 5 from me.

Nice ending, I'm certainly going to read the next in the series. :-D

My star ratings include these 5 elements:
1★ story line
1★ engaging characters
1★ use of world building/descriptions
1★ narration or editing
1★ the ending

T-Rexes and Tax Law

OMG!! This story is absolutely a mix between hilarious and logically serious. The characters are so life like and the narrator brings each one to life. A story about a tax account for the IRS traveling back into time and facing dangerous situations. How does an IRS agent make the columns mesh when the accounts are so out there!!
Fantastic audio and story!!!

Exciting and Funny Time Travel

This was a fun listen, with humor and action/excitement. The how and why our "Tax Man" and associate end up in a time travel situation is at first funny, then goes darker with murder, mystery, and an exciting finish. Don't let the silly title fool you, this is an excellent start a series worth reading...

Light hearted science fiction

T-Reyes and Tax Law is a light hearted science fiction adventure. Alfred, the time traveling tax man, starts the series as the epitome of the self important nerd, The series is told from his perspective with him blundering into fantastic situations. He is aided in this first adventure by Nancy, his coworker, a more well rounded individual. The background story is intriguing, the action continual, and Alfred both ridiculous and heroic. Although John Aimone has a few “ interesting “ pronunciations, he does an excellent job with the central character. This is an excellent series for those who like science fiction adventure with a dose of humor.

This is Going to be a Great Series

The author is definitely onto some good with this series. Alfred a taxman is funny and likable with his quirks and idiosyncrasies. The narrator is a perfect fit and does a top notch job. The story is part Jurassic Park with time travel. But it is definitely original and was a blast to listen to.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Everyone's "favorite" taxman

I guess the IRS truly is everywhere. Great story. I started the series further down the line so I really appreciated getting to know Alfred "in the beginning". He was somewhere between hilarious and scary and of course Nancy was smart and really ended up saving the day. I did have to listen to this alone because I kept laughing. The narrator captured him perfectly with a whining type of voice that made you want to slap him. It fit perfectly. Nancy came across as sarcastic and smart which considering she was the voice of reason, also made her perfect. I loved the "mercenary". I did have a bit of trouble with the description of the time problem and would have liked a better detailing of that but nevertheless, the story moved right along and didn't stop until the end. I'm off to Book 2.

Great listen!

As far as time traveling books go this one doesn’t care so much for the how and why and just throws you into the scenario. It’s a fresh take. The characters are fun and quirky. My only complaint is the narration is a little slow. I bumped the speed up and it seem to work just fine.

Who new taxmen could be funny?

Our hero and heroine work for the IRS and take a field trip to investigate a case of unpaid taxes. When they run into live dinosaurs, things get a bit complicated.

This may be hard to believe, but taxmen can be funny, although usually as the butt of a joke. At the basic level, this is a science fiction story involving time travel and all the fun paradoxes that go along with it. And that could be enough for a really fun story, but here we also get a lot of wonderful dry humor to go along with it. Our hero is such a single minded, straight-laced individual that he makes the perfect source for many a funny moment.

The story is very well written and, while it doesn't go into hard science, it does try to keep things as realistic as possible, which can be quite a feat with time travel. The characters are also really well written, including the supporting cast, which helps make the entire story come to life. As this is an audio book, I can't really call it a page turner, but I was very much looking forward to each opportunity to listen.

Speaking of audio books, the narration was also very well done. The pacing was good, pronunciation clear, and the characters were well represented. Overall, a clear pleasure to listen to.

I received a free ARC copy for review purposes.
