While very predictable, the book does carry the story a !title further. The writing continues to be good and the characters intermingle across the books, which is nice.
This novella was very exciting, everything from bombings to flaming car crashes. I really enjoy these novellas that go back to some of the characters and re-visit them. this was Lazaro's second chance.
