FYI - like the series well enough that I buy the books rather than using the Kindle Unlimited.
But this series is amazing! Your writing improves with each book. Though the stories remind me of early to mid 1900s pulp detective fiction, these characters have so much more depth.
If you are a fan of noir detective fiction, urban fantasy, steampunk elements, or any blend of the three, buy this. An intriguing mystery, a plot that keeps deepening as we discover more about rune craft and its capabilities, and characters that are at risk and therefore keep me engaged and even concerned about them. By that last, I refer to the fact that too many authors would not have killed a certain lady after spending the time to develop her, and though I liked her, it keeps the story interesting because a huge cast of "protected" characters limits the possibility of where the story goes.
If you are new to this series you CAN read this book by itself and enjoy it, but by all means go back and start with "In Plain Sight", the first book. You will gain some valuable background on the characters here and it will put some story elements in context.
I hope you're working on the next book, Mr. Willis!
I bought the book and, having never read a detective novel beyond Sherlock Holmes stories, I wasn't sure what to expect.
These books are amazing. Each one has it's own tempo and style, each with their own unique additions to the cast, to the world of the books, and to the twists in the plot.
Last time, I thought that nothing could improve on book 3, the ending note was too good. This book is a new verse in the music; book four is entirely it's own speed, different yet part of the complete whole that is this series.
It is a turning point in the series and while I wish I knew all the answers to all the questions I have, now, I know that I will just have to wait for the next book. So not fair. I have to wait? ><
Dan Willis has managed to raise the bar and up the anty, yet again.
Truly sir, thank you for this book. I eagerly await the next one.
TL;DR: Read these books. They are spectacular.
I highly recommend the whole series for a well written and fun diversion.

I'll deduct one point for things that I didn't like.
A few times names were changed, e.g. from Wagner to Warner or Betty to Peggy. There were also a few homophonic mistakes like to instead of two. And a few things were redundant. Whether Sherry was as pretty as Leslie came up twice between Alex and Leslie with almost exactly the same words. Also, there was a discussion between Alex and Iggy whether a vault can have more than one door once in chapter 6 and again in chapter 24. Both times Iggy didn't believe what Alex said and told him he might have been delusional. The second time sounded like they had never talked about that point before.
You can say I am a nitpicker and you might be right. But once I notice such things in a book, it bothers me for the rest of the time.
Apart from that I highly recommend the series. If you are unsure if you'll like it, you can get a short story for free from the author's website.
