It feels like the se­ries is get­ting in a bit of a rut, which is nor­mal con­sid­er­ing it's the 4th book al­ready. Start­ing the 5th tonight!

I un­der­stand this book is not for ev­ery­one. I un­der­stand the idea of a par­al­lel uni­verse with an Alas­ka Jew­ish state, fa­mous for their Shoyfer cell­phone brand­s, in­hab­it­ed by yid­dish-s­peak­ing cop refugees from 40s noir nov­el­s, about to be rein­te­grat­ed Hong Kong-­like in­to the US is not for ev­ery­one.

So, it's not for ev­ery­one, but it's for some, and if it's for you, it's awe­some.
