I'm on the I liked it side of the fence for this book, but just barely. I liked visiting with Sid Halley again but his character seemed a bit sketchy, as though Francis relied more on the reader knowing Halley from previous books. I didn't care for the change in his father-in-law's character. And there were moments when I felt the scenes had been recycled from previous Francis books, which isn't necessarily bad, but still. The writing - especially the dialog - does not feel the same as the old Francis either. Nonetheless it's one of his last, and I'll keep it with my other Francis books for old time's sake.
