I couldn't bring myself to give a book in this series fewer than four stars, but I would like to knock off a quarter star or even half a star if I could. I love this series, and I love the characters, but this one suffered from not enough Henry Stone, not enough Rae, and no Morty. No Len and Christopher either. Having read the others, I knew not to expect the last three people to be around, but I missed them anyway and don't feel like I was given enough to replace them. I still enjoyed this book, and tore through it, but I wasn't as flat-out in love with it as I was with the first four.
