This is a very good transition novel between the first and final books of the Pine Deep anthology. I give it three stars, rather than four, because, as a transition, not a whole lot happens. It fulfilled two things: wrap up Ghost Road Blues and set up Bad Moon Rising. Because of that, not a whole lot actually happens, at least for the protagonists, not until the end.

The bad guys like Vic and Ruger do their thing by preparing for the Red Wave, but Crow and Val spend most of their time in the hospital or recuperating at home. Weinstock slowly but surely discovers the true nature of what they're dealing with. Terry also reaches a turning point in his struggle to stay sane.

It's a fine transition and the writing is excellent. Character development is top-notch. I only wish the main protagonists (Crow and Val) did a little bit more.
