This series really should have an omnibus edition for the whole thing, because it's actually one continuous story.

Book 5 contains the big twist in the story, so I won't spoiler anything.

Let's just say that this twist is simultaneously exactly what I thought ca. halfway through book 3, but also manages to not disappoint me at all. It's as if Rick and I think alike: with this set up, that must happen, so when I read it all I could think was "yes, wow, that's exactly it!".

After the last episode, I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. I'm still not sure if it's my favorite, but its definitely neck and neck with Episode 2 for me.

The same blistering pace and tight action sequences of the first with even more uncertainty and less safety than any episode yet. Plus, a bit more of a peek into the minds of the baddies... though by the time things are said and done, good guy vs bad guy is looking like a loose set of definitions!

Can't wait to see how this all ends up

Rick Wayne is a cretinous mass who's dissected a cadaver, climbed the Great Wall, jumped from an airplane, designed sampling systems, swam naked in the Mediterranean, and felt the blast of a terrorist's bomb, although not in that order. When he's not vomiting words, he's planning his next adventure.
