If you are expecting a continuation of the series, you will be disappointed as I was. Yes, the familiar elements of the series are used but in this offering Burdett injects a futuristic/scifi twist that did not work for me. I realize that an author of a series might want to stretch the boundaries a bit to keep things fresh but this is such a departure I cannot see how this can go forward. Perhaps that is what Burdett has in mind. I don't regret reading it but I do regret purchasing the book instead of waiting till my library obtained it.
