|it is a cool cover, no?|
I should have listened to my inner skepticism. There are some really good moments, but overall it was very unsatisfying. This book suffers from an awkward structure and an assumed familiarity with the "famous team" that really isn't all that interesting. They are very upper class and seem to have a ton of different skills. It is in the action moments when they use these skills, particularly in an exciting car grabbing scene and another B&E, that the book is very enjoyable. But the rest of it is kind of a mess, wallowing in annoying upper-class self-satisfaction with no intrigue and a muddy sense of who is bad. So not great. Too bad, as I thought I had found a nice little discovery there. Turns out Drummond is a pseudonym for Roger Longrigg, a prolific and successful British author who wrote under many different names.
