This is another (almost) intriguing book by an artist of his craft. Kathryn Dance is led a merry waltz by a very clever criminal whose main skill is inducing fear into people, a fear which causes them to panic and in the scramble that ensues, people are killed or badly injured. So much of that is clear from the beginning, even telling us the perpetrator's name, Antioch March, and how he is planning his next event, taunted by his psychological problem which he calls "The Get". What is not revealed until much later is the appalling background to these planned events. Kathryn works her way through what clues there are, becoming quite devious (just how much is not seen until very near the end of the novel) herself in bringing the perpetrator to justice, and also starting a whole train of other convictions to be pursued. Unfortunately, and this where my bracketed (almost) comes in at the start, is that the end becomes rushed. The actual denouement is very well staged, but then everything falls into place too easily thanks to immediate confessions. Kathryn's love life also adds something of a distraction, although it does seem to be working out towards the end. Still a good series, an intriguing plot, a good read, just the drawback of the quick ending.
