Finished two Connolly books in a week and now on to the next two. The battle between the forces of good and evil is a winning formula. And each character, no matter how minor, is drawn so well and contributes to the momentum and a satisfying climax. The bad guys get their come-uppance, but the good guys do not emerge unscathed.
