Awesome as usual for Saul, I love his stories and this one is no exception. Very good.

As serial novels go, I guess this was ok. But to me it was just a bunch of short stories (which I hate) that were connected because all the people lived in the same own. There isn't much of a story you can tell in 65 pages so the plot was thin, the characters not developed and the suspense forced. All in all, not his best work.
