Sorry Mr F - must try harder. I've read most of this series and am a big fan of Dev Haskell and Mr Faricy's easy, witty writing style is always a pleasure. But this one, despite being billed as a novella, left me feeling a bit cheated. There's no point listing it as 181 pages when only 26% is actually Dollhouse. The rest is a preview of Scam Man (book 13). And that's just what I feel....scammed.
Literally took me 10 minutes to read it and I wouldn't mind if it hadn't felt so rushed. Like he bashed it out in an afternoon. The ending felt contrived and I don't get the phone call he makes early in the book to the owner of the Dollhouse, which put his girlfriend in enormous danger (IMHO). it was daft behaviour even for our Dev.
I've already bought a couple more of the Dev series - am hoping this isn't a sign of a decline in quality.
