So, onto this latest one. This is effectively a padding novella between the previous proper novel and the next. Apparently Hamilton wanted to clear up a few things about some of Anita's relationships and medical health before getting the next novel under way.
I forget what happened, mostly. I seem to recall a zombie-raising that goes completely pear-shaped, plus some assassination attempts and a nice hotel room. There's not much to this. There's very much a feeling of, "was that it? Where's the actual story?"
Hamilton's a competent writer, in that the words go by quickly, but there's a lot of sex and, honestly, I just skip those sections. I just don't care (the last full novel began with 200 pages of foreplay).
Put it this way: if this was on an album, it wouldn't make a single. Or even a B-side. Just nowhere near enough plot.
