Nostalgic for the good old days? Don't start this book, trying to read it will just make you feel bad. Once upon a time, long, long ago, this series developed a fascinating cast of characters, interwoven investigations, prosecution prep and courtroom drama, with a consistent touch of paranormal/mystical/religious action.
Now, wooden characters developed by lengthy descriptions rather than activity, cartoonish evildoers, pathetically stupid Islamic terrorists, thwarted by well meaning and not very effective Homeland Security folks.
The glory days are gone! What is to like? Nada!
