They did it again! Another one of those "Huh, what the hell is going on?" books, from the now-team of Ben Aaronovitch and Kate Orman, where it does all make sense in the end. And here, when we thought everything was fine, we knew it couldn't be, because the book wasn't over yet. And again, got to a point where one was thinking, "How on earth are they going to get out of this?" and they did anyway. Surely it must be hard to think of yet more universe-threatening threats, and yet they did it. And very sensibly, they put the body on page one. Since everybody knew she was dead already, might as well take advantage of that, and still manage to leave us in suspense.

And of course, the in-jokes and past-adventures references - noticed the Tara reference - sneaky! And Kate(?) put in more "guns and frocks" jokes, um, in-jokes. I dunno, I can't see a reference to guns and frocks in Kate's books any more without smiling.

But the title still looks like an anagram to me.

A silver-dusted Rubic's Cube that someone does for you, on the Sid & Nancy scale.
