It was really sad when people died in there, like Maggie and George. But overall, this book was really enjoyable. ( )

The first book was excellent; the follow ups interesting, but not as good as the first one. I think the problem is that we have gotten to know Montmorency a bit too well. When he was more conflicted in terms of whether he wanted to be Scarper or Montmorency, he was interesting. Now he seems less so, though I am enjoying getting to know George Fox-Selwyn's family. The book does have a number of shocking revelations for those who have followed the series. I was thoroughly surprised by them (I keep thinking that a YA novel would be "softer" in its treatment of crime, sex, death, etc.--more fool me). Anyway, my naivete regarding the YA novel in general has allowed me to be surprised by this series, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. ( )

The American parts were interesting - mildly - the spy bits were largely stupid (_how_ long have they been doing this?), the characters and relationships were rather sketchy. Again, a bad place to stop - setting up for a sequel a little too obviously. Each book gets more bloody, more depressing, and less interesting - I may or may not look at the next one if I come across it, I won't seek it out. ( )

Characters worn thin.

This franchise is done, I think.

Won’t look for the fourth. ( )

Boy this was a good read. This is the third book in the series and I've read all of them. Quite a story taking place in both London and in America. Thomas Edison even makes an appearance. The book is set in the Victorian period. Anyway, this is a young adult novel, but anyone who likes mysteries will enjoy this tale. ( )
