Starting to sag

by Dana C on May 31, 2012

It's good to see Harry Paterson's name in the copyright, which tends to make one think the "chairman of the board" role for Mr. Higgins is past and he's taking the reins again, but I notice a number of inconsistencies over the last eight or ten books. Several characters were introduced who now barely rate a mention or have disappeared altogether. Sean Dillon's role seems to be greatly diminished, and the promising romance between he and Harry Miller's sister is completely absent from this latest entry into the series. On the other hand, there seems to be less use of trite phrases, such as "you don't take prisoners" and so forth in this work, so I tend to believe the stable of writer's assistants has either changed or been dismissed, which the copyright tends to bear out. I was getting extremely bored with the formulaic writing, if Higgins hadn't "tooled up," "gone to war" and returned having not "taken any prisoners" in at least every other chapter, something seemed out of place. But one can only handle so many catch phrases. The series seems to be dragging, but with this latest entry, I hope Dillon is resurrected. After all, he's only about 59 by my recollection, so hopefully has many years in front of him, ala Liam Devlin.
