bookshelves: historical-mystery, western-setting
Read in October, 2002

Uncommon Enemy was SO good I had high hopes for the follow-up but was surprised that it was billed as a Mystery of the Victorian West. The mystery aspect was pretty poor: several red herrings and obvious clue-dropping. The characters were not fully explored and she totally wasted the whole "save the sacred spring" plot. The Indians were all sent "off screen" and became incidental to the story which ultimately lacked depth. I could see the set-up for another installment in the way it ended. All-in-all OK but a tad disappointing.
