I have had the extreme pleasure of reading this book (Thank you, Josh!) and for me, it went by much too quickly. I wanted it to last for days! Sadly, it didn’t.
This story is a lighter fare for Lanyon. Much of the gritty intrigue of his mysteries is missing here but this story isn’t written in that flavour. The voice of the characters carry through and once more, an homage to the film noir / classic theatre is woven into slices of the plot.
It was a fantastic X-Files meets Hepburn/Spencer romp. I’ll build out a bigger review closer to release date.
