Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 10 January 2012
This is a difficult book to review without spoiling the storyline and, as I see, this has already been done by several reviewers. A pity, really, as the point of this story is to leave the reader wondering where the author is taking us with his very popular characters.

On the journey to the last pages, Myron and his very close friend and minder, Win, are tracking down the absent brother of Myron, brought about by a chance encounter in a nightclub of the brother's wife, Kitty. Alongside this personal hunt is the small matter of an ageing rockstar's sudden departure from the family home, some drug dealing on the side, a dead client or two, throw in a couple of mobsters and we have a rather convoluted novel filled with macho antics and personal grief.

We do get to see more of Myron's personality, his family background, his love for his family which rather grates against the violence meted out on mainly deserving cases.

It is a book which will stand alone; there are ten or so previous novels in this series and some are better than others. This latest stands in the top five but it is certainly not the best. It's as though the author is clearing the decks and doesn't quite know the best way to do that, so much so that there are many loose ends that need another book, at least, to remedy this. Given Myron Bolitar's popularity, despite his creaking joints, I do hope we don't have to wait too long. But then..........
