Okay, I really, really liked this book, but there were also things in it that disturbed me. The plot is great, the mystery suitably mysterious, but (and I hope I'm remembering this right, because I read like four of these books back-to-back-to-back-to-back), I thought Grenville was in his 30's, and something happens that makes that impossible. Maybe I just didn't catch it, and I admit, I did not go back and check the first book for Grenville's introduction, but I'd been picturing him 8 or 9 years younger than Lacey. With the way that the author has changed the eye color of a couple of characters, and evidence that she relied on Spellchecker a little too heavily in a couple of books (words spelled correctly, but not the right word), I'm not willing to concede that she didn't change Grenville's age.
This book introduces a new antagonist for Lacey, and I hate him all ready. I can see that this issue won't be resolved speedily, and I'm looking forward to the next books to see how it unfolds. I also am very much enjoying the complexity being reveal in James Denis' character. It's easy to hate a villain. It's harder to hate a villain, who helps a good cause, even though it is for his own selfish reasons.
