I bought and read this. MY FIRST PURCHASED EBOOK.
Apart from spoilers* the lead character being dead by the end of Alex's first book and for the most part seeming entirely disinterested in anything police related, other than looking good in the eyes of the ladies
I thought it would have worked better as a Hammersmith story. It felt like empty vindication of the character to have a story centered around his exploits, knowing full well he can't truly grow with the mythos of the novels. Wouldn't I love to see Springheel Jack show up in an Alexander Grecian novel tho!
Very descriptive, touching in parts and dry and meticulous in others. Well crafted story, with a lot of character development squeezed in so few pages. Highly recommended!!
