I adored the Arabesk series start with Pashazade so when I was wandering through the SF section and saw this novel I grabbed itI had forgotten he wrote another book I didn t like as much I only noticed when I looked for the name of that book just now Hunh Anyway This was wonderful sort of a supernatural detective story set in alternate San Francisco About which I know very little so if there were geographical problems I would never have known Has the sort of frenetic feel of the good Neal Stephenson novels but manages to finish the story without feeling like you just drove off a cliff Dude I love Snow Crash and The Diamond Age but I am aware of their flaws OK he mostly resolved things I m still not clear what Pete Sanchez was doing or why or why Bea s family didn t stop that relationshipbut that s acceptableAn anti hero I liked whoa

I can t say I enjoyed this very much at all I know they say that it s good for characters to have flaws but I felt Bobby was full of flaws that made him completely unlikable The only uality he had was that he loved his daughterI found this very hard to get through and although uite an interesting plot line I didn t think it was written all that well It was hard to follow with all the POV changes and I didn t find any of the characters all that likableSo much could have been done with this
