Does anyone like this series?  I'm stalled half-way through book 3, The Clan Corporate, and I'm beginning to lose interest.  Does it pick back up? 

I enjoyed the first book, but it seems to be getting flatter as it goes along... any opinions?

I'm afraid I'm of the same opinion. I want stuff to happen and its not. Its like the middle of the series syndrome has been stretched out to 2 books. Charlie promises that The Revolution Business will be more interesting, but its my last crack at this series in hard cover.
