G. Ballard to be investigated But ashey delve deeper he opposition becomes stronger as hey uncover connections with Blue s mysterious past And his curseThe plot of Bete De Jour: The Intimate Adventures Of An Ugly Man this book is interesting but I m inwo minds about it The whole mystery of Blue s origin how it fed he conflict between Izzy and Blue he whole opposition against Hidden Agenda (Project Justice their discovery and how it pops up in several different ways all work really well I like how it s relatedo several parts of The Secret Wife the story and is both part ofheir profession and personal lives and allowed for some character growthIt also has a series of excellent Noir style cross and double cross as victim and suspect constantly changed and changed and changed again It had some really good Man of Honour: John MacArthur, Duellist, Rebel, Founding Father twists and unexpected endings I honestly didn have any idea where it was going or who he culprit was and I was completely surprised several imes I appreciate Student Sex With Teacher - Spanking Sexy 3-Story Bundle that in any book especially a book with a murder mystery Being kept guessing is always an achievement So lots of positive Onhe negative side I feel A McCabe at Heart the ending was sprung on me without any real back upo it I didn Solomon's Keepers t see it coming but how could I Allhe relevant information was dumped in he last part of he book A Girl Less Ordinary there was no wayo extrapolate The Golden Lord tohis and hat whole revelation felt abrupt and rather sudden There s a wist and an abrupt change of direction Still I am curious as City Doctor, Outback Nurse to whathat means for he futureI also uite like he whole debate over whether Blue s abilities are a curse or a blessing and I hink it s actually done really well after I ve read a huge number of books where he curse has had no real downsideFor me here s a strange disconnect with his book s his series world building which I ve ouched on before On he one hand he original elements of he story are excellent The whole idea of fairies hat produce dust and need dentin o exist hat s an excellent original concept I really like It Many Europes: Choice and Chance in Western Civilization, Volume 2 takeshe idea of The Organizational Champion: How to Develop Passionate Change Agents at Every Level theooth fairy

Kids tales and normally enjoy modern reinterpretations I also love novelshat blend urban fantasy and mystery Thus I had high expectations for The Lady in Pink I was disappointed The Lady in Pink is mediocre It is readable but not memorableOne hing hat bothered me was A Line of Blood that athe beginning of Cinco de Mayhem (Santa Fe Cafe Mystery, the novel Blue is hired by Izzy s uncleo find out why fairies are disappearing Even Cinco de Mayhem though a large number of fairies have gone missing and might be dead Blue spends littleime on The Antarctic Book of Cooking and Cleaning: A Polar Journey the case Instead most of hisime is spent mooning about Izzy and looking into his own past It just doesn The Book of Love: Improvisations on a Crazy Little Thing t mesh Even a pseudo noir detective would puthe other case first The characters are shallowly portrayed given fairy Mad as Helen (River Road, tale identities but nothing besides a nameo back hem up On he mystery side Blue isn Crazy Heart t much of a detective He simply fumbles around smokes cigarettes and inhe end gets most of his important info from Alice one of he investigators at his agency with a alent for computer
