Bear in mind, please, I love this series. I read it as much for the stories of the relationship between Decker/Rina and Decker/Rest of the World as I do the mystery and drama. That being said, the cult of crazies and power-seekers in this book is a cookie-cutter motif with all the standard characters you'd expect from a "cult" and all of the bizarre rituals you might want to mock (which I find ironic, given the way that many people in the series - and out - see the rituals of Judaism and its sects) and all the fears about cults the media plays upon. The relationships between Rina and Decker and Decker and his children, the children and Rina, all seem to have hit a tired point as well. There isn't anything new or surprising.
It's possible that the predictable nature of some of the steps in ordinary relationships is part of the natural evolution of the characters, but if I wanted to experience that I don't need to read about it. It's dull.
Add in the feeling you get as you read that things aren't going to end well within the cult, as they usually don't, and the feeling that the relationships between the central characters are going to sort of muddle along without any big changes happening, and it isn't an interesting read.
Would I have skipped it, in hind-sight, knowing how I feel about the series as a whole? No. Was the writing well crafted? Yes. It's the actual story-telling that just falls short - this time. I'm looking forward to reading the next because I expect, and usually get, better.
