This one seemed lacking. Maybe it was because Micky Knight, now sober and in a long-term relationship, had become too normal. Or maybe it was because the mystery revolved around a lot of gay men, the least interesting form of human for me. The mystery also required almost no action and a lot of talking. Yawn. Then Micky's personal life takes a significant, albeit almost unbelievable, hit and Hurricane Katrina arrives. Things do juice up nicely, but unfortunately Micky experiences most things from a distance. She's not even the one to solve the first part of the mystery. This book really needed Cordelia's POV. A lot is left unresolved and I'm tempted to dig right into Water Mark.
