I didn't think it was nearly as good as the previous two books. Too many things happened that were telegraphed by the author so they weren't real surprises. Cliffhangers are good for TV shows but I think in books they are quite tacky

The Tannenbaum/Michael Grueber books are terrific. W/out Grueber to hold him in check, Tannebaum has been spectacularly dreadful.

What a shame from an individual who had formerely been an awesome attorney, NYC ADA and writer, albeit one w/an excellent ghost. Readers beware.
