It's really not fair that I have to leave my book-reading to do things like work, eat, or whathaveyou. This book, like Emperor of Ocean Park, has such excellent pacing that you just don't want to put it down for any reason.

Having finally been released from this book's grip, I will say that I did prefer Carter's Emperor of Ocean Park--but I am very picky about my mysteries/thrillers and this one had a touch of gruesome I didn't enjoy and also, I found a few relationships toward the end of the book just enough beyond my suspension of disbelief that I felt my traditional chagrin about mysteries return.

But a very good read, and an enjoyable return to Carter's skills with narrative and characters. Yes, I must now get my mitts on Palace Council!
