Spoilers... Better than last book, great performances as always. The whole connection to Cottons ancestor was rather ridiculous, and how he got his name, seems he couldn't decide which reason it was so went with two, which didn't work for me. Pick one and stick with it, they didn't go together well.

For me, the weakest thus far in the series

It seems as if the great secret is held off painfully long, even though we kind of know what's coming, and even the characters seem content to wait in frustration.

Also, I now wince each time I hear "that, he did" or "that, it was" etc, he uses it so often and it just annoys me lol, it's a personal thing but he even has had characters saying it. I don't think I have ever heard someone talk like that in real life.

When he had a a character ask Langdon, sorry I mean Cotton, about his name, it was so out of place, but clearly needed to go in somewhere as in all the books.

All in all though still pretty good and of course a must read if continuing the series. I hope it picks up a bit next book for me.
