    This why WJW is not awidely popular writer He is just so uneven This third book in the series reverts to the detective story format of the first, but now projected on the luridly and scornfully depicted world of Hollywood The book s Big Idea is underwhelming, and when it undergoes a revision during the ending, the new explanation just seems wei...

    I liked this novel in a lot of ways.The POV character, Sean, rather weird but personable and believable The secondary characters, too And the plot is pretty tight yet convoluted, and ends up mostly making sense Mild spoiler here, though it s in the first 100 pages One of the foci of the plot rests on Sean s guilt for killing a friend And yeah, the friend died However, I think if 2 people drunker than lords decide to drive vehicles, and while trying to avoid a collision one of them dies I liked this novel in a lot of ways.The POV character, Sean, rather weird but personable and believable The secondary characters, too And the plot is pretty tight yet convoluted, and ends up mostly making sense Mild spoiler here, though it s in the first 100 pages One of the foci of the plot rests on Sean s guilt for killing a friend And yeah, the friend died However, I think if 2 people drunker than lords decide to drive ...

    Interesting to see a Dagmar book from the perspective of someone who is not Dagmar, and it s fairly clear why this was done by the end Similar to Dagmar, Sean somewhat teeters on the edge of likability, which isn t a terribly bad thing in my opinion.Overall, this book wasn t terrible, but it was somewhat uninspired It doesn t really make much of a point maybe in the end there s a somewhat misguided attempt at appealing to technocratic fallacies, but that s almost an afterthought , and the mys Interesting to see a Dagmar book from the perspective of someone who is not Dagmar, and it s fairly clear why this was done by the end Similar to Dagmar, Sean somewhat teeters on the edge of likability, which isn t a terribly bad thing in my opinion.Overall, this book wasn t terrible, but it was somewhat uninspired It doesn t really make much of a point maybe in the end there s a somewhat misguided attempt at appealing to technocratic fallacies, but that s almost an aftert...
