Jim Corrigan died in 1933… but he returned to life. Now, he can’t die.
Through the first season, Jim and his friends matches wits with the supernatural side of San Francisco, making both new friends – and a few enemies.
Tempus Investigations mixes the world of TV and books, making a unique kind of story – a fan fiction so elaborate it needed to create the show itself. In this book, you’ll find the first four episodes, which form Season 1.
If you love shows like Buffy, Angel and Supernatural – tune in for Tempus Investigations!
Tempus Investigations is A Fictional TV Show by Claus Holm. The author has taken a brilliant concept and brought to life through this audiobook. The idea that plays out is that the main character Jim Corrigan who died in 1933 and he returned to life becoming immortal. Choosing to help his fellow-man with his gift of immortality he has done many different jobs. Jim has served as a solider, police officer, to his current job as a psychic detective in San Francisco.
Jim runs Tempus Investigations with his secretary Mercedes. She assists as well on cases. Together they share an easy banter that makes for an attention-holding dialogue through the entire book. The dialogue is crisp and snarky. If a person is a fan of Joss Whedon’s Angel or Eric Kripke’s Supernatural they will most likely enjoy this. The stories are episodic in nature and wrap up and do not get deep into the details like most Television shows.
The entire audiobook does a great job of holding the listener’s attention as the cast of characters grows throughout the season of episodes. Jim Corrigan is a man who believes in second chances. He offers these to people and creatures he meets on the cases he works throughout the season lending to great flavor for the stories being told.
The excellent narration by Neil Hellegers gives life to the authors cast of characters as they grow through the fictionalized season. This is the first time I have heard an audio performance from Mr. Hellegers but I truly enjoyed this performance. Each character was given a unique voice and they were memorable. Mr. Hellegers was able to project the fear the characters felt as well as the full range of emotions creating a memorable cast of characters. The production quality of this audiobook is also the highest quality. I heard no problems during the entire performance. There were not any detectable flaws that I was able to hear during the entire performance such as loops, breaks, or buzzing. The production was crisp and clear. Spoken Realms delivered an excellent audiobook production.
