SPOILERS for The Thirteen Gun Salute; here’s the non-spoiler post if you got here by mistake.
Is this the worst cliffhanger to date? I can’t remember anything so bad. That must have been epic levels of bad for those who had to wait for the next book’s publication.
What I meant about the structure: the failed pursuer and Fox, personalities changed for the worse by life circumstances; Inaccessible and the uncharted reef; and there was something else, too, but I can’t remember what without re-reading the book now. I think it had something to do with the nasty nature of intelligence work.
Speaking of which, I can’t believe Stephen did that! A co-worker who’s currently listening to the series asked me whether he actually killed them, I think because it’s oblique and so very nasty that it’s hard to believe.
Unfortunately, the next one made me cross and had me put off logging them, so now I can’t remember what I should about this one. Except, of course, hell of a cliffhanger.
