Shelves: mystery
well plotted & characterized, though as the series progresses it is moving away from the sci -fi and supernatural elements and into more mundane, if still outrageous, conspiracy theories, Spoiler ahead. stop reading, Garth gets married

Absolute Garbage - the worst book I have read in a long while. Got one star as I could not give zero. There are very few books I do not live but this was one of them

One of the best books in the Mongo series and the subversive in me gets a giggle considering plot of this nation's right-wing being a Communist plan.
