The switch to first person storytelling was odd and confusing. This is the 9th book in the series. Why change?
The plot was so convoluted and, ultimately, so far fetched that I seriously considered not even finishing the darn book.
None of the usual characters (Esperanza, Win, Big Cindy, Myron's parents) played more than a passing role. This was very disappointing! Who cares about Therese Collins?!?
Myron suddenly has a brother in Peru and a sister? What in the world?! Why mention them at all when Myron is clearly written as an only child?
I use the whisper sync audible narration and the new narrated was awful.
Save your money and your time and skip this one.
Terese and her new dilemma did not captivate my sympathies, probably because she is not an empathetic character from the past. Just as I questioned why I could not really engage with the story but only float along page after page skipping words and sentences to get to more interesting parts, the answer struck me. Myron's latest adventure had transformed into a plot from a bad, really bizarre, "B" movie where you spend a lot of time asking the same question over and over. Really? Really? Seriously? What? Whatever form you choose, the intent of the question remains the same. Myron got himself involved with left overs from a science fiction movie? No, a zombie movie? Wait, a World War II master race movie? Myron comeback and bring all my favorites with you! PLEASE!
The trouble arises as usual from Myron's hero complex. A past lover, Therese Collins, asks for Myron's help on an urgent matter, and he instantly flies to her aid in Paris. From that point on, there's never a dull moment. Myron is followed, attacked, shot at, and harshly interrogated by secret agents from France and America. There are terrific confrontations in which Myron gives as good as he gets.
Such bad things happen that Myron begins to show symptoms of post-traumatic stress syndrome. But there are tender moments, too, between Myron and Therese, who reach a new level of intimacy. And there are both touching and funny scenes between Myron and his worried Jewish parents.
Myron gets off plenty of quips as always. His dialog with secret agents is especially amusing. And there were sentences that made me pause and think, wow, this is really good writing! I feel that Harlan handled international intrigue very well in this book, even though it's not his usual genre.
Myron's ongoing adventures, however outré, never cease to fascinate me.
