This story's plot and outcome are predictable from the beginning of Eddie's quest. Only two things kept me reading: the participation of the delightfully droll and urbane Walker (from Green's Nightside series); and, the humorous, (occasionally witty), comments from Eddie and/or Walker. Besides Walker and Eddie, the other characters are shallow. plastic and dull. Further, the plot is a bit of a snore. I prefer a story which surprises, engages and/or challenges, not a tale about a trite competition solving a string of cliche mysteries. (Note, the more compelling mysteries which concern the identity of the Drood family traitor and the circumstances surrounding the death of Eddie's and Molly's respective parents are mentioned and, then, left unresolved.) If you like the series, I suggest you wait until this book comes out in paperback. The hardcover cost is too high a price to pay for this marginally entertaining tale.

The dedicated Drood family understands their mission is to protect mankind from paranormal assaults. However, there appears to be a traitor amidst the Drood brood; shaking the family to its core as none has ever betrayed the trust. Eddie "Shaman Bond" Drood vows to learn who the seditious agent is and the deadly duplicity one way or another.------------ However, Eddie is forced to put aside his personal quest as the fabled Arthur King is dying without an heir; forcing Eddie and several other agents to try to solve the King's riddles. Revealing five of humanity's most puzzling mysteries will lead to uncovering the King's secrets and to his surprise help identify the traitor.------------------------ The quests take Eddie and his intrepid team to some of the more famous mysterious locales like Roswell. However, the key to this superb investigative urban fantasy is the choices Eddie must make between resolving his family's needs and saving mankind from destruction. The mystery subplot is clever and fun to follow as that is the avenue Eddie travels in unlocking the King's secrets, but the stops along the way in which he is forced into several Hobson Choices make Simon R. Green's latest Brood crew thriller (see THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN TORC and DAEMONS ARE FOREVER) an excellent adventure.---------- Harriet Klausner
