Having read this series from beginning to this release, it's is great reading but can grate on you more for the context of the era than the actual story. Anyone who has not lived through the era might have issues with some of it. This is the first book that seems less like the rest in that regard. Letting go of the "Archie Bunkerlike" detective was a plus. I just downloaded #6 & 7.
