Doesn't improve on the previous book in the series. In fact, I think things are getting a little worse. Too many "too" problems. The problem is too big. We have what would be a problem of national security involving ambassadors to a nation of super powered individuals, so the leader of the nation decides to pull in... an overweight private investigator with issues regarding supers to deal with it. The story is too fast. From the time the main character gets involved, everything that happens until we reach the end happens in less than twenty-four hours. That may work to keep the main character off balance, but it can have that same effect on the reader. And a few too many characters carrying the idiot ball, including every character in the room during the final confrontation.
I'm not sure if the author still intends to come back to this series in the future. It seems like he worked to establish a new starting point for the next one in the final chapter. I think I'd give it one more shot, but the series as a whole is on shaky ground with me.
