Overall I liked it but it took me awhile to get through this one. The first book in this series was so-so for me but I was interested enough to try the next one. The second book and all the others since have just gotten better and better...except this one. I felt this one took a couple of steps backward. Though I did not like it as well as some of the previous books in this series, overall I do like the Felix Gomez character. The first half of these books always seem a little slow to me then the second half picks up and by the end of each book I'm wondering what will be in the paranormal cards for Felix next time. One definite improvement is that there was not one reference to theTapetum Lucidum of his eyes, a phrase that was significantly overused in the first few books.
