I like this series, because it takes me around the world and I like Russell and his friends, they always provide an interesting background to the story.
I was really really liking this story and its mystery up to 90%, then I began to feel detached from the story. There are several victims in this story and I felt that Russell was so deep into his situation that the original victim's trauma was a bit dismissed and I think it wasn't really fair. I felt that in the way the final confrontation was resolved, Russell showed just a fleeting and shallow sympathy, while I was experiencing this sadness for the "kid with a broken wing". He had just finished explaining how he flinched from every touch, he was being attacked by a dog, and I was feeling how terrified he was, even if his motivations were misguided. I was looking for a sort of rope to hold on to to be able to pass that moment, and I felt I was left alone.
I also find a bit improbable that Russell didn't verify the initial story more depthly. He gives a lot of explanations - records sealed, petty crimes, etc. - but still I couldn't believe he jumped into this case so blind.
Anyway, I enjoyed it and I have already bought the next two. The last sentence was baffling. I want to see what Russell will do.
