As the director at Jones & Jones, a psychical investigation agency, Fallon Jones solves crimes of a different nature. Jones’s latest case involves a body found in the basement vault of a local bookstore, and scratchings on the inside of the door that seem to be a coded message.

My rating:

Don't let the rating fool you. I liked this one. It was just too short, and written as a case file (from Fallon Jones' point of view), and I didn't really know how to rate it, so I took the middle ground.

It was great revisiting Fallon again, since I have a soft spot for this chaos theorist. And for Scargill Cove where the man's hearth is.

The narrative style offered a special glimpse into the man's psyche and thinking patterns (he was a hoot in this one), we're presented with a small investigation in Scargill Cove during which we learn there are no coincidences, and in the end witness the first meeting of Fallon and Isabella from his point of view.

Now I'm itching to re-read In Too Deep and get to see the two of them interact all over again.
