I waited and waited for an audiobook to become available through the Boulder Public Library. I listened on audiobook while walking in Boulder - I enjoyed the story, even if it wasn't one of my favorites. Recently, The Daily Camera (Boulder's Newspaper) did move it's operations from Downtown, just like the book said, I guess I should be watching for a new multi-use building :-)
A lot does happen in this story to affect Alan Gregory's family: new neighbors and thoughts of moving from Spanish Hills. Looks like book Nineteen will also be taking place in Boulder (many stories take the characters on investigations away from home). Book Nineteen will likely be released in the Fall of 2011.
There were a lot of penises in this book, but I guess that's to be expected - Is the rock formation "Devil's Thumb" or "Devil's Dick" ? It's all in the way you look at things - some people can look at the same thing and see differently. Personally, I always thought of the formation as a snag tooth :-)
