Much better than the first book with Vasquez & James, with a much clearer story-line. An interesting writing style, though it still is kind of long-winded.
What I like with the writing style is the ease with which the story is told, there is no akwardness. It is flowing so easily that sometimes it is even overflowing :P
The characters are also very compelling and distinct, though I didn't like some of the mushiness in the end.
James indian heriage was also much clearer in this story, something that confused me a lot in the first book.
