    Story
    "Three murders, and yet....dull."

    We are introduced to a cast of characters here, but it's like reading a roster. We don't ever get more than mildly acquainted with any of them. This book illustrates the importance of fleshing out the characters enough to arouse the reader's interest in their actions. No one in Smokescreen evokes even tepid curiosity, so at the denouement the reader shrugs "Huh.", immediately - and completely - forgetting it. How I know that is I chanced across this book in my library a couple days ago, where it showed as downloaded in April 2012. Not remembering it at all, I decided to read it again. I finished it this evening, and the memory is already fading fast. Again.
    Nothing particularly bad, just...dull.
