I bought and read this. MY FIRST PURCHASED EBOOK. :o 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!!

The Blue Girl was only partly awesome! :twisted:

I haven't been round these parts in a while. Thanks for the honest opinion, EK. Sorry it wasn't your cup of tea. I guess you can pass on reading the sequel (The Scarlet Box) when it gets released. Believe it or not, I'm really looking forward to growing this character outside of the series continuity over the next few years. I liked him and decided to revisit him and see what I could do over the course of a single week in his life.

Any plans for these to see print at some point? I don't mind digital (and I did read The Blue Girl digitally), but I'd always rather flip the pages of a physical book.
