the end of THE GOOD DETECTIVE I ll admit the latter half was far thrilling than the first act, the twists and turns leaning in to the climax kept me rooted to the page, and I really enjoyed the doubt and uncertainty at play for the detective and his own involvement in part of the crime The spooky vibe of this big organization, hidden in the shadows, was deliciously disturbing and I really appreciated how things resolved without being tied in too neat of a blow But despite how it wrapped up for PT, and how I liked where that went, I m not sure I was ever particularly taken by any of the characters No one really stood out It was the story that kept me pushing on and less so the people chipping away at solving it.Anyway, I would pick up a McMahon book again for sure Would I read
