    Fool me once so the first book was good enough that the surpise at the end about the mystery extending to the next book was acceptable About a third of the way into this next book however, I started to wonder about the pacing and meandering strands so I flipped to the end and lo and behold Continued appeared there so not fooling me twice I did not finish it To be fair, if
