It's an older Miles in this book; there are still hints of his manic personality and recklessness, but tempered by experience and responsibility now. Very little of the action-adventure style from earlier books - though there is still some action - but instead more of a focus on Miles gathering information and solving problems. Overall I think this book is better than the last couple in the series, but doesn't quite reach the heights of the early books. The ending hints that there is more to come. Worth reading for fans of the series.
On the whole I found this story less gripping than usual. But a good read nonetheless.
