The number of Gammas captured or lost has grown, and while some of their specialities are extreme, none of them bothers me as much as Mrs Cho, and what she's done to her poor spaniel - and now I've written that, I'd really like to erase that whole passage from my memory! At the same time, I still get a shiver from the line at the end of the passage about the disappearance of 5 boys: 'Steven Reyes counted eleven eyeballs in the jar'.
Information about the individual team members is starting to appear, although sometimes it's just as difficult to extract as clues probably are for the investigators. The progress of Chaz's slow recovery from his earlier experience is cleverly shown through the verious media which are always part of these volumes, and so, too, is the damage Reyes' management style has caused within the WTF. It gets even worse this time, where poor communication drives a wedge through the team. At the same time, Reyes's desire to warn the public about the existence of Gammas is countered by the overall boss, who foresees all sorts of problems should the public react..... Crisis follows crisis, and suddenly Chaz has gone, this time back to his old haunts in Las Vegas, where he faces demons of a different kind from his past.
Having read all the previous books, I've become totally engrossed in the individuals within the team, and their associates, such as Dr Frost and Dr Ramachandran (but not Celentano), and need to know much more about them. The plots within each book, too, are extremely clever, and each time I reread them I find fresh information, which I'm quite sure is leading to something much bigger than simply a number of Gammas with their individual powers. It's a very powerful storyline, and each member of the team is full of secrets yet to be revealed. Long may the series continue - I can't see myself tiring of the WTF for a long time to come.
