After reading the first three books in the series I certainly expected a similar type of quality in the fourth book. Plot and characters was inconsistent. No depth to characters as in previous novels. Too much in too short a plot. I wanted to feel a growth in relationship between the Spook and apprentice but seems as if focus was more on Alice and apprentice in this novel. This storyline might have worked better as the 8th or 9th novel coming out but there are so many stories that the Spook and apprentice could live out themselves before it got this far (brimming with Thomas Ward's mysterious past.) Is Joseph Delaney planning on ending the series soon? Is that why he is putting the equivalent of 3 or 4 plots into one book. I hope the next book will be back-to-pace with the first three or our book club will not include it in the monthly reading!
