As to the method of character development and character voice, it put in me the mind of reading the Nero Wolfe mysteries in my youth. Combined the excellent crafting of a story with some subconscious reading memories. Wonderful!
The mysteries in the Lupa Schwartz books are always fascinating, and I love the interplay between Lupa and all the supporting players, Bev, Trevor, Mia, and all. Their dialogue is often witty and sometimes snarky, and that is fun to read.
While doing her part to bait the killer in Shared Disbelief, Cattleya has a crisis of faith, and while some of the focus on that was fascinating - J.D. does a tremendous amount of research - I started wishing that we could get on with the investigation and the story. If you have an interest in the history of religions, you will probably appreciate getting to know some details that come out, and all that focus did connect to the main story.
I do love the covers of the Lupa Schwartz mysteries, and the two central characters are very engaging. That is what keeps me reading.
JD Core moved quite nicely between events throughout the story with no "hiccup" arresting the reader's thoughts while reading. Controlled pace with suspense leading you to turn pages, this novel is a great read. Loved the character Lupa Schwartz.
