The Outlaw Gillis Kerg ... is the fourth book in the Physics, Lust and Greed Series by Mike Murphey and another satisfying entry in the series that will keep fans turning the pages. Marta Hamilton, who has bullied her Happy Home Companion to silence, and her fellow time traveler, Marshall Grissom, are almost sure they will have no more business with the past until a federal judge is killed. Their investigation takes them to Arizona, resulting in a confrontation with Gillis Kerg, a man with a terrible hatred for science, bent on disrupting the order that the consortium of powerful companies and governments has created.

Mike Murphey's writing is perfect and this installment in the series continues to deliver the kind of entertainment that readers look for in works of science fiction. This one will surely win over readers; the plot is cleverly written and the author creates an environment where science thrives, with advanced time travel technology and an invention designed to make life most comfortable and easy for users for ensuring security— the Happy Home Companion software that is created to do the human bidding. Everything could have been perfect, except someone is determined to destroy science. The elements of science fiction are alluring in this immensely satisfying tale. There is much that will appeal in this mesmerizing and boldly accomplished work that blends time travel, conspiracy, and power control to pack a powerful punch. The excellent prose, the finely drawn characters, especially the outcast Gillis, the intelligently developed scientific concept, and the dazzling world-building are some of the elements to highlight in this book. Mike Murphey is a master at writing engaging dialogues, even interactions between the characters and the software. The Outlaw Gillis Kerg fast-paced and immersive, a novel that examines the delights and dangers of time travel.
