I am only 15% into this and I am HATING it. Lots of “Ughhh, WHY did Cook do that?” kind of moments. Garrett is acting stupid beyond anything I’ve seen in the entire series. It feels like he’s permanently drunk in regards to his mental acuity here. It just isn’t like him.
This was written in 2013 and is apparently the last Garrett PI novel. So far, I can see why. Unless there is a miraculous turn around, this is going to be an ugly read.
