Read from February 29 to March 04, 2012

It should be obvious that I like this particular series. However, this book started a little bit slowly for me. I also thought at first that I must have misunderstood the designation of the book because the main character seemed to be an FBI agent named Kelda James. While I did enjoy the novel, I did not find her character satisfactorily believable. I think there is a tendency with some authors who write a long and successful series to start playing around with different points-of-view so that some of them lose the voice of the first person narrator that has made the series very readable. Others play with the narrative frame. Others discard a setting that is integral to their works and move the action to a locale that doesn't work nearly so well. Others destroy or kill off characters who had been essential--or change good people into entirely yucky ones. I was relieved to find that this book was an Alan Gregory series after all.

Dan I've just started this one but White did the same in #9 with Alan Gregory appearing almost as an afterthought. I found it as a breath of fresh air as there is only so much 'action' a psychological therapist can find himself in. Let's see how this one pans out.
