I have long been a fan of Mr. Hurley and the morally ambiguous universe his characters inhabit.
These are best books read in order because while the basic characteristics of Faraday and Winter do not evolve or change, they become more entrenched and eaach new story illustrates them in a different light.
In this story power, influence and politics play a primary role in how Faraday goes about tackling the crime, while honour,retribution and violence are at Winter's disposal. Both of them question the motives that move them forward.
Like all of Mr. Hurley's books, the subtle nuances of the plot and characters leave you ruminating on them long after you turn the last page.
I have read recently that the next book in the series will be the last. I still have a couple more to read to catch up to it, so I will buy it (Happy Days, an interesting title for a last book) and slowly savour the others before tackling it.
