Still fun, but...

Book two, read in the day following reading book one.

It's still accurately describing the startup world, but now emphasizing the crime / whodunnit. That's ok, but it's worth noting in my review.

Two slight exasperations:
* There are a variety of bits of the book that are just writing for writing's sake. They don't advance the story; just give an aside about the mental state of the character. I'm not finding these additive to the book. A hard editor would cross out some whole sections.
* Each book is somewhat short. This is likely a choice, I order to get books out quickly that test the interest & engagement if readers. This may just be the fact of life in the era of self-published authors, but it's not my favorite thing. (OTOH, I'm happy to not have to wait two years between books.)

On to the next.
