I really have fun with this series. I listen to a lot of books and always have that moment when I start up a book in a series where I wonder if I'll k..Show More »now what's happening, but he does a concise recap without boring you or overloading you. Mike is doing well, growing, learning, hismcharacter is progressing nicely. Making good choices, with a few bad ones here and there, but he's human. So it stays entertaining and fun.
But, there is this one thing that needs to be discussed. He (author) employs famous dead people throughout both books. The first one was Edgear Alan Poe and a few war generals, I won't spoil whose in this one, but there's some good ones. I have a love/hate relationship with famous dead people having active roles. He does seem to pull it off though. I initially cringed, but they all worked well. At least it wasn't jack the ripper, I hate when when he shows up. I look forward to another book!
