Author: Glen Cook [Macmillan][isfdb][Goodreads]
Series: Garrett, P.I., Bks 4-6
Length: 680 pages
Obtained: Library copy
Why this book?:
I read the first three in the series, and I was interested in reading more.
Garrett's world continues on it's grim path, with more magic and evil, mystery and intrigue along the way.
Old Tin Sorrows
This is a ghost story. Garrett has gone to a creepy mansion with secrets (of course) and danger (of course), and has been hired to keep the General from being assassinated. But Garrett's developing more questions than answers (as usual). In the meantime he keep seeing a mysterious woman. (One thing about these books is Garrett's relationship with women. I generally feel like I should be offended. Mostly I just find myself shaking my head and muttering, "Again?!" Anyway, Garrett has woman things going on amidst the rest, because apparently he is irresistible and can't help himself.).
Dread Brass Shadows
I'm coming at this months after reading and having trouble remembering enough to write impressions. I've re-read a blurb, and I recall various events, but my thoughts and feelings of the time? They escape me.
Red Iron Nights
Garrett is working with the police as they rebuild and try to catch a serial killer in this one. I'm going to leave it at that since now these stories are beginning to blend together for me.
