really liked it
Read in April, 2012

I've been finding many of the Alex Delaware novels somewhat 'meh' lately, but this novel redeemed the series a bit for me.

Sometimes I wonder why I keep up with the series because there are some things that grate on me:

The minute details of what a person wears, how they look, what they're eating, etc., etc., after 18 books of this, it feels a little over done sometimes.

Also, even though Alex Delaware is the protagonist of the series I actually don't feel a compelling connection with him as a character. The other players in the series feel more alive than Delaware himself. Alex often comes off as disconnected from the emotion of everything, almost non-feeling, empty, emotionally boring. It's hard to explain, but I can say it is frustrating as a reader. I suspect this won't change, and I probably will continue with the series (I've made it this far, after all).

What I liked about this latest entry was the depth of the plot - it was very well-done and didn't feel as 'out there' as some of the others did. Recommended for any Delaware fan.
