Rating: Recommended if you are a Peter Grant Fan
Here’s the TL;DR for my review (SPOILERS!):
- Lots of stories, any one of which could keep you entertained
- The multitude of stories means there is no one strong antagonist or overarching plot.
I’m keeping this review short because my hands hurt and I don’t want to type.
This was a fun story, an anthology of short stories, telling how Peter solved some small crimes. He’s forced to retell these to his superior officers when he is trying to get a promotion. I recommended it to veterans of the series who are invested in the characters.
