Venus In Copper is an absolute scream of a read. The characterization is brilliant as is Falco's wit. As with Pratchett you can start the series almost anywhere and not feel you are missing something but I would definitely recommend starting at the beginning with The Silver Pigs (Falco 01)
as it makes Venus In Copper an even more enjoyable read.
Well done Lindsey and I look forward to reading the rest of Falco's adventures.
