    1. Show or TellYou ChooseIf you enjoy character development, you'll probably like Little Deadly Things. If that’s not your cup of meat, then take heed: the story begins in the reading present and then moves back in time to examine the childhood of the main characters.The outer tale is a technothriller, high-tech sci-fi. The inner story is an exploration of how adults cope with the angry residue of a childhood served under abusive or feckless parents.I use a lot of ink on the back stories of the c [...]


    2. I think this is an excellent first novel. The plot flows smoothly and the characters are well-developed. I look forward to the author's further efforts.


    3. I do not give negative reviews lightly. A writer myself, I know what it takes to write a book. The process is long, tedious, and often lonely. But this books was, honestly, that bad.My favorite part of my " Prime" is the Kindle Owners Lending Library. Reading new authors who I would never have head of has been eye-opening. There is a lot of talent out there, and I have read quite a few serviceable first novels using the service.This book got a lot of rave reviews, which led me to select it. The [...]


    4. Little Deadly Things is a techno sci-fi thriller, including futuristic elements.The story begins in 2038 in Boston, MA, where a tense meeting takes place between a disturbed world class scientist and an animal trainer/handler. One wants something from the other and has no right to ask. This is a terrific hook and questions are immediately raised. Protagonist, Eva Rozen is the product of a brutal childhood and possesses a brilliant mind. Her goal is to control the future of medicine using nanotec [...]


    5. Little Deadly Things was one terrific book. From the first chapter to the last, the story pulled me in. Three emotionally fractured and brilliant peopleTwo finds healing and wholeness through love and one does not. I loved how Harry showed the stark contrast of their emotional strengths and weaknesses. I loved that he gave Eva Rozen some redeeming qualities because in the end, despite all her anger and psychotic tendencies, she does the right thing. I also loved Harry's references to Jackson Pol [...]


    6. I found Little Deadly Things highly interesting and entertaining. The character of Eva was engaging. I found Marta & Jim to fit very well as the protagonists to her villainy. Dana and Abuela were, while not fully developed, befitting to where perhaps there could be more to the story. I for one would like to see if/how Dana can develop his gifts to put a positive spin as opposed to the negative ways Eva manipulated nano technology. I am going to recommend this book. Looking forward to reading [...]


    7. Little Deadly Things is a beautifully written work of fiction about what happens to brilliant children who grow up in difficult and abusive situations. It's a story that reminds us about the importance of our actions as parents, and how those actions affect the lives of our children both now and in the future. It's a thriller. There's a bit of science fiction thrown in. It's a very entertaining read.


    8. This book was a total pleasure to read. The plot moved along, full of action and suspense. Detailed and imaginative, but believable, futuristic touches blended with the timeless beliefs of the Mexican abuela. And, to top it all off, the writing was lovely - complex but not self-consciously so. A magnificent first novel. I agree with another reviewer who said the end left you hanging, and can't wait for book 2!


    9. I was trying to find a cheap book to read so I found this on the "$3.99 or less" Kindle list. It wasn't the worst book that I read, but it did take awhile to get into it. It is also set in the future so it took awhile to figure out what minor things were happening because they are using technology that we don't currently have. Overall, if you are looking for a cheap book, it isn't bad.


    10. Not the book I expected. The seeds of good and evil growing from a group of young brilliant scientists, and the conflicts that arise, from the internal ethical struggle with each character, to the changing group dynamic, to global catastrophe.


    11. I am not a science-fiction reader but this is a must-read. The character development was outstanding and the action/story kept me from putting the book down. I enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read another book from this author!!!


    12. Great bookA futuristic story but one that looks a the things that make a person who they are sometimes to the extreme



    13. Fantastic!One of the most interesting books I've read in ages. I could not put it down! Can't wait for the sequel. Bravo sir for a rousing action adventure with compelling characters and SCIENCE!


    14. Once they were friends. Now two scientists race-one to save mankind, one to destroy it.Nanotechnology made Eva Rozen the world's wealthiest woman. Rage made her the deadliest. Marta Cruz alone can stand between Eva and the death of millions. But will a crippling illness stop Marta first?That's a great blurb. Unfortunately Steinman takes far too long to get to it. Except for the intriguing first chapter, he spends the first half of the book on back story. The plot is ignored in favor of character [...]


    15. I am having a hard time reviewing this book. I backed the Kickstarter, and I'm a customer of the author's wife's business. But it just didn't work for me.The plot was very interesting, and while I never really doubted how it would resolve, I enjoyed the ride. The characterization struck me as problematic - it was clear who you were supposed to sympathize with, but it seemed that all the characters had opposing traits grafted onto them. Jim the timid and sweet had an anger problem that isn't clea [...]


    16. Interesting bookit is set in the future but the science fiction is just the reality of the lives of the characters rather than the focus of the bookwhich i likedthe book starts in the present and then tells the back story of the three main characters while also moving the story forwardthe three main characters are interesting the baddie is also a goodie and the goodies are not prefect either. kinda like real life reallythe 'story' is about techno developments and how the characters have differen [...]


    17. Three different individuals from varying back grounds meet as youngsters at a special school in California. A young boy and two girls, one from Eastern Europe with an abusive childhood and some serious mental problems, but also a brilliant student of chemistry. The story follows their growing up, their disputes and friendships. As adults the chemistry student gets into nano investigation (we are some years in the future) with the sole purpose of making money. The other girl is the granddaughter [...]


    18. Young Eva Rozen witnessed her sister's brutal murder, and barely escaped with her life. She found refuge in the orderly world of science. Twenty-five years later, this master of nanotechnology is the world's richest womand the most dangerous.Marta Cruz also endured a troubled childhood. Her mother's death and her father's incarceration left her an orphan, and a crippling disease left her in pain. Marta's refuge? A tropical rain forest where she discovers plants with miraculous healing properties [...]


    19. While the premise for this story is unusual and interesting, I'm afraid I found the execution lacking. Overall I thought the story was disjointed, and without the smooth flow that makes a good book hard to put down. By the time I got to the end of the main plot, it felt like the disaster was an afterthought. A big chunk of the book is back story for the main characters, some of it very interesting stuff, and some of it flat and unbelievable. In particular, Eva came across as a cartoon type villa [...]


    20. Little Deadly ThingsTitle was intriguing so yup went and got the e-book.So it began, slowly I learned about the characters. The development of each of them was steady, slow and strong. With some books you may want to skip over the details surrounding the characters and what caused them to become who they are within the story. Due to the fact that at times it becomes long and drawn out. Not with this book. With this one you want to devour everything about them and hold it within your mind.Just wh [...]


    21. I will admit - I gave up on this book for a few weeks. I was enjoying it well enough, but something about it seemed to drag. I finally picked it up again and finished the rest of it in just a couple of days. Ultimately, I'm glad I picked it back up. The book has a pretty strong sci-fi edge and, while I'm not immensely familiar with the fields he presents, the sci-fi certainly seems plausible enough. I was (and still am) a bit on the fence about the characterizations. On the one hand, I felt like [...]


    22. I am a bit torn on how to rate this book. It was disturbing and I was confused at times – futuristic technology stories don’t typically interest me but I read the book straight-through. Parts of the story stayed with me for a couple of weeks after finishing, even though I didn’t feel there was anything particularly good about the writing and I couldn’t like any of the characters. So there was certainly something there that I can’t put my finger on – I am glad I read the book but if t [...]

    24. This book has some real flaws, like overly long descriptions of technical processes that have no bearing on the story. I won't gloss over the issues; really, this is not great, or even good writing. However, the story is truly new. I haven't read a novel like this, ever. I wish I could give this more than five stars for actually creating a story we've not read before and maybe one star for the writing style.


    25. I read this book based on the recommendation of a friend of the author, and I'm so glad that I did. I enjoy reading both thrillers and science fiction, and Little Deadly Things could fit in either category. At times I was not quite sure where the story was going, but then that is the nature of a good thriller. I also enjoyed the reference to dog training and the behavioral sciences. I hope to see the marvels of nanotechnology the book describes in my lifetime.


    26. Complex story that was very well edited. It grabs your attention and keeps it firmly focused on the plot twists. I know some will dislike the sketchy and somewhat vague description of holistic healing of the rainforest natives, but it moved the plot along at just the right pace without being overbearing. I enjoyed this odd, almost freakish glimpse at a possible future world immensely.


    27. Eva Rozen is the world's wealthiest woman. Nanotechnology made her rich, but her desire to eliminate her competitors has sent her into a rage that could be deadly.Marta Cruz is Eva's childhood friend. Crippled by illness, she is the only chance of stopping a power-crazed Eva. But will the illness get her first?


    28. I absolutely loved this book! It has all the ingredients i love mystery, science and psychology. If you like this in combination then you will love this book. It shows how great minds might work when brought up in adversity. A great read.


    29. I really enjoyed this book. The writing was rather overly-descriptive, but the sci-fi story driven by three interesting characters kept me reading.
