This third book of the series was just OK - definitely not as good as the first two. Too much running around and difficult to keep track of. The best bit was the introduction of Scott's family who had up till now rejected him for his being gay but apparently seem to have come to a reluctant acceptance - maybe we will see more of this relationship in subsequent books.

There was a lot of running around and characters but it wasn't as enjoyable as the other two books.
