As a Cormac fan I was pleased to read a book from his (and Amelia's) POV. I did miss Kitty's POV, but this series needed a jolt. The last couple of books were disappointing reads and the weakest 2 books of the series (IMO). This installment was so much better it gives me hope for the last book, Kitty Saves the World.
I thought the mystery was cool. Cormac had to face his past, both people he knew and his deceased father. A favorite quote: (Amelia) "You had carnal relations with her!"
