Grimes was on my soon-to-be-abandoned list, given that her past few were not compelling. This one regains some of the pacing and interest of her earlier titles, although I'm not sure what's with the channeling Rita Mae Brown. That degree of cute doesn't sit well with her otherwise somewhat grim and careful tone, and I'm not sure she's carrying it off entirely successfully. Still, it was a pleasure to be reacquainted with some of the old series regulars.
