This is not the best James book. It's not a bad book, but it's not the best. There is one plot development that does seem to come a bit out of left field.

Outside of that, this is still good James. She takes time with her characters, and this is really her strength as a writer. She shows people as human, and not a classic bad guy and good guy way. Even if we don't like a character, James still makes the reader feel something for the character, perhaps pity. This makes the people in the books human.
