really liked it

How much am I loving this series? Let me count the ways:

1. Sterling wittiness, both in the dialogue and the descriptive parts.
2. Glamor. Johnson makes New York City glamorous in ways that you miss sometimes, Mrs. Amberson is the grand diva of glamor, the Hopewell (though shabby) retains its 1930's charm, the Martins are one good-looking family, and oh yeah...Chip and his old money is back.
3. Boys. Not so much Eric vs. Max, but SPENCER!!
4. Hotels--I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I love hotels, even the shabby ones.
5. Respectful satires of Law and Order are a-ok in my book, although I doubt Jerry Orbach was ever the jerk that Sonny Lavinski is portrayed as being.

When is book 3 coming out?
