I did not like the end of this book. I read it all the way thinking that surely, something would happen. It never did, and that is the one thing that sperates this H.B. novel from the others.
I am glad I read it. Any novel by M.C. is better than no novel by him. He is a complete writer and this book stands alone.
It is just that... well, if anyone else had written this, it would be just great. But with M.C. you expect more. Where was the tension? Where was the stress? Where was that 'what Harry does' going to make a difference? How does the interplay between him and the new Chief make us care what happens? And at the final scene, why didn't M.C. do his usual series of visions behind a sanded glass wall? It was all too apparent.
And for the first time, when the book was finished, I didn't care what's going to happen to Harry next. Sorry.
