But for a science fiction book set in 1985 there is, in fact, very little science fiction. While mankind has bases on the Moon and has just invented a transmitter that allows them to transport people and things without any loss of time nothing else has changed. Computers don't exist, they still use telegrams heavily and everybody talks like it is the 1950s. It is the first of the Jan Darzek novels, written by Lloyd Biggle Jr, and was written in an era when the magnificent, sci-fi future of the world was expected to take place in the 1980s, the time in which the book was set.

This debut novel by Lloyd Biggle Jr. recounts the adventures of private-eye Jan Darzek that are made possible by the invention of instant matter transmission. This novel is pure classic sci-fi from a simpler time. Written in 1963 and set in 1985, the book tells the story of how matter transmission (teleportation) was invented and introduced to the people of planet Earth. Fans of Star Trek will recognize and enjoy many familiar themes as the mystery unfolds. Those who appreciate this book will find four Jan Darzek sequels out there just ready and waiting. Four fantastic science-fictional stars.

I was thrilled to see a kindle version of the first book in the Jan Darzek series.

Having been written in 1963, the story is based on a future that never came to be. My paperback from 1968 is 176 pages, so the story is short compared to today's epic novels.

The introduction of a new piece of technology is as disruptive to the transportation industry as the kindle has been to publishing. Jan Darzek (a competent man in the same sense as the heroes of Dick Francis novels) is hired to determine who is trying to sabotage the new innovation. Whodunnit and why is great fun.

The kindle edition is well edited and formatted. The only error I had noticed was in the subtitle and that's been corrected. This is not a trilogy. There are five books in the series and I can't wait to add each one to my digital library.

Biggle is a pioneer and combines thoughtful compelling sf with mystery and strong chacturization. You will NOT second guess anything in the story.

Some people think Monument was his best book, but I am partial to this one. What are the consequences of learning how to do matter transmission? Globally is one thing. For the whole universe another. A wonderful book with well drawn characters. A science fiction mystery from when that wasn't being done. A real master piece.

classic scifi done in the detective style

Lloyd Biggle, Jr.'s _All the Colors of Darkness_ (1963) is the first of a series of five novels featuring a hero named Jan Darzek. When I was in high school, I shamelessly stole the title the title for an essay that I was writing about _The Brothers Karamazov_. I trust that the hounds of hell will not pursue me 'cross the desert of cactus and lodestone for this terrible sin. In any event, my use of the title-- on the complexity of the characters in Dostoyevsky-- had little to do with Biggle's use of the title-- on the spectroscopic vision of aliens.

At the outset of the novel, Jan Darzek is a private investigator who owns stock in Universal Transmitting Company, an outfit that is working on developing a worldwide system of teleportation.* In fairly short order, Universal Trans is up and running. But almost as quickly, some people begin to enter the transporter gates-- and fail to arrive at their destinations. Darzek is hired to investigate the disappearances. He does, but then he also vanishes...

I suspect that a system of teleportation wouldn't be accepted quite so quickly. But the details of how the investigation is conducted are nicely told, and the later twists and turns to the plot (there are many of them) are also well-handled. _All the Colors of Darkness_ is a solid science fiction adventure. As I have said elsewhere, Biggle was a good craftsman who usually managed to work a little something special into his novels.

* This raises a completely irrelevant question. How many fictional P.I.s can you name who own stock? Not Sam Spade, Philip Marlow, or Lew Archer-- though that that All-American Tough Guy, Mike Hammer, might have some U.S. Savings Bonds. Lord Peter Wimsey and Albert Campion are independently wealthy. Some of that might might be from stocks, but I suspect that it is mostly Old Money. John Putnam Thatcher is a banker who advises clients on stocks and bonds. Yes, he would probably have a portfolio. But he would be very discreet about its contents.

Someone is sabotaging the Universal Transmitting Company's new technology--instantaneous transport of objects and people around the world. When Detective Jan Darzek investigates, the mystery seems inexplicable--out of this world.
Biggle has a distinctive light style. He has created a complete universe, as well as an Earth future that is set in the distant 1980s (he wrote in the 60s). Darzek is a classic SF hero--untouched by self-doubt.
Definitely a classic
