Janek does it again. There is no mention in this book of his girlfriend from the previous book. So he starts over with a new friend. I did not like the ending of this book, but I guess it leaves an opening for another follow up.

After being drawn to & invested in the Frank Janek character by "Switch" & "Wallflower", I have to admit I was disappointed by "Mirror Maze". It seemed overly long & tedious in places, mainly because it indulged in psychotherapy that felt beyond even Janek's keen instincts. Although I felt the same empathy for the Gelsey character that was felt by Janek, the bond they developed felt uncomfortably wierd & out of character for both of them.

I did especially like the ending. It ended the only way it could for poor tortured Gelsey. For Janek, the ending had a plot twist that (for me at least) seemed to invite a final case for Janek as he continues to use his intuitive detective talents as he works the streets again. I read for the 3rd time in the Q&A that there is little chance that will happen. but I'll keep hoping W.B. will somehow change his mind.
