3 1/2 starsI always enjoy the books in this series, some more than others. In comparison with the earlier Alan Gregory novels, I found this one too cerebral, wordy, and dense with descriptions of the architecture, layout, and history of Boulder. I kept thinking White made too many trips to the thesaurus while writing this. Big words where simpler ones would have served just as well or better. It was also heavy on discussions of domestic complications. He tried to give me an earworm on page 29, but HA! it didn't work because I already had "Kodachrome" stuck in my head.
