I actually liked this a lot better than all the other books in the series. The characters aren't actually kept in a safe house for a majority of the book doing nothing (well it doesn't feel like it anyway). Manny goes out to do field work and he takes Josh along for the ride to be his handler. I could have sworn R.J. Scott wrote in book 4 that this would be a 5 book series but it seems there will be a 6th book. I look forward to reading Jake's story.
