it was ok
bookshelves: mystery

I read this after I read London Bridges, which didn't really effect anything too much. I think I would have been more irritated if I read London Bridges after this because the characters acted clueless about the wolf the entire way through Bridges, yet they should have known who he was at that time. Anyway, the lack of any real detective work in these novels irritates me. Alex lets other people uncover things then goes after the bad guy and fails. Someone will turn up a piece of information, Alex will ask some questions to himself, then the possible bad guy will be sighted and Alex goes there. It's ridiculous. I don't like Alex, I don't care about his life, I don't care about whatever random girl takes an interest in him in each book. The mysteries are ok, the bad guys are ok, but there is nothing special here. I haven't read many mystery series, but every other one I've tried is better than this. Since these are easy to get I will continue to read them until I find something else, but each book makes me want to work that much harder to find a replacement as soon as possible. I really don't see what everyone loves about this series, but to each their own.

Ross I totally agree with your last couple sentences here. whenever there is a mystery the reader should be sharing in the detective work - that would have been the interesting story.
