Gruesome as ever
Finding a good detective story without sex and swearing is difficult. I suppose I can bend to a little gruesomeness. That said, this book is very well done and ties up many loose ends left over from the previous book. Grecian never seems to run out of new monsters with which to unnerve us and he leaves us in a good place to bring about a particularly troubling one for his next book. I am glad that he does not play a "Game of Thrones" with us by killing off our heroes, but he still leaves us unsettled from the loss of one of his characters. I only wish he had not taken the one he did or irritate us with male insensitivity toward women. It is barely tolerable that the heroes are slow to pick up clues and lag behind the villains until the very end, but to compound it with male stupidity pushes tolerance to its limits.
Grecian sets a consistent tone throughout his books and the narration of John Curless is excellent in expanding the mood. His narration of Jack is marvelously creepy.
