Unfortunately, the series begins to run out of "something". although I'm not sure I can put my finger on what "it" is. I'm not sure if it was plausibility or perhaps a tendency to over accentuate the supposed relationship between the protagonist and the people he deals with. Dont get me wrong, these are well written and finely crafted works. It's just to me they began to be a little overdone.
Having said that, If I could write half as badly, I'd not be 'working for a living. Buy the first book and if you enjoy it, certainly go ahead and buy the second. You'll know whether you want to read on after that... MInd you, given the dross I'm wading through, if you need some good books for a vacation, just buy the whole lot.
