I have greatly enjoyed the previous four Wild Cards novels--they contained some of the best writing I've read in the past couple years. Maybe I would have liked this book more if I hadn't read the others, but I didn't feel Fort Freak lived up to the excellence of the others. This was written as a mystery, but I felt it lacked urgency. I was never made to care very much about the resolution of the mystery, nor made to feel that anything significant was riding on the outcome. The writing was good, the characters were really well written, but this lacked something that the other Wild Cards novels had. I would recommend this only to fans of Wild Cards who want to read them all.
