There are a few places where the book would have benefited from more careful editing; for example, the word "oar" was used instead of "ore" when referring to old mines and prospecting.
However, it is easy to overlook those rare imperfections when the story is exciting and the characters are interesting. Overall, a very good read.
Gimme a fershlugginger break!!!
This book in the series deals with the mystery of the death of two young men. Zack and Eagle Feather and Dr Susan Apgar are called in because there are elements of the murders that are just weird and that is the kind of thing they DO! The weird!
Actually, this time the weird was only a passing element... it was the human element that was the most dangerous. this is a bit of a divergence from the other books in the series, where the weird was the major thread and a clear and present danger. And the format was a bit different ... The author obviously felt it imperative the reader have information about the young men who were murdered and their story as to how they got to where they were, so the author jumps back and forth between the story of the two young men and the present day investigation of their deaths. A sort of ongoing flashback during the telling the the story of the investigation. somewhat disconcerting. Flashbacks are not unknown as a writer's ploy... and this series of flashybacks was pervasive enough to be mildly irritating. The information about the boys and their various misadventures that brought them to a deadly conclusion could have been told in a less disruptive way, I think. I wanted the main story and action of the investigation to roll ... and a little more of the weird, I guess. The weird that marks this series and form a strong and interesting bond between these characters was almost missing here... given only a passing nod, as it were, so the main storyline was more of a normal investigation of a murder than the other three books in this series. I kept waiting for the weird to rear it's ugly head and become more of a part of the story and it didn't... well, except to accidentally save the skins of the heroes. I doubt the long leggedity beastie actually saved the heroes on purpose... it was just going about it's weird business and happened along at a very important moment. in the drama. sigh...
I really was looking forward to more of the weird adventures of Zack and Eagle Feather... I hope the author changes his mind and goes back to tell more tales like the ones in the first three books. this one was good and entertaining as far as it went, but it felt truncated and "I don't want to write this stuff anymore". I hope that is not so, Mr. Gamble... if you read this review. You had built a wonderful personal conundrum between the Agent and his family, his best friend and the professor who seems to be actively getting interested in the Agent... and this kind of sub-plot only adds spice to the main character's mental and emotional juxtapositions. It gives a mystery a more personal twist as the hero of the story deals with murder, the supernatural and family turmoil. It is what made books two and three of this series exceptionally exciting.
You can do it, sir... and do it well... so do SOME MORE of it...please?
