Reviewed as of chapter 4:

So far the story is an interesting twist on the usual isekai. While there hasn't been much room for character development so far, the author has done a good job of building up the MC without excessive info dumps. 

Dillon, our main character, is also the narrator in a way that feels reminiscent of old school detective shows or novellas. If you are a fan of those, you may enjoy aspects of this story. He's not a "dark and gritty" caricature, but comes across as someone who knows what he's doing because he has lived it. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Quite literally it would seem. 

I'm looking forward to how the story develops from here, and would recommend it if you are a fan of isekai and detective stories.

No major grammatical or spelling errors that I noticed. Overall story flow is good.
