Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: As ever, the Sin du Jour universe is complex and clever. The writing is excellent, with natural dialogue and transparent narration.

Con: As ever, there are too many characters, and many of them are hard to tell apart and/or play no important role in the story. Even having read the whole series to this point, I depended heavily on the “search all text” function of the Kindle to remind myself who all these people are.

This story is so dependent on the previous novella and the next one that it doesn’t have a coherent plot of its own.
