Although a bit predictable and formulaic, it's still an enjoyable 'read'. I might suggest, however, you read Dance of Death before reading this one. It gives you a good base for the characters.

I have avoided this book and its predecessor because I generally avoid "man wrongly accused" However, this book was really fun. It had the return of a number of fun characters from earlier books (always a pleasure) and there was resolution.
These books are somewhat formulaic. I don't actually mind this. there is enough fun to keep me interested. I enjoy the development of characters from book to book. I enjoy the bizarre internal logic that the authors keep.
Some of the later books in this series have parts that move grindingly slow. I didn't find that in this one at all. There was no point where I just wanted to cry because I couldn't flip through the pages and ignore the boring stuff.
I highly recommend it.

This is the conclusion of the Diogenes Trilogy and it starts with a bang. Carrying on where the last book left off, it sets the scene for Diogenes to be the ultimate big bad for Agent Pendergast. However as the book progresses and the plot unfolds, his lethal and dangerous air seems to dissipate as we get in his head.
There are some good set pieces - the "perfect crime" is nicely executed and following Pendergast in prison, but the last third of the book seems aimless and tepid.
Worth the read if you've read the others.
7 books read now, and intriguing as always. Nice twists and developments. It is easy to recreate the story in my mind and feel as though I am there with them...
