Garrett gets hired by the aid of an aging millionaire general to find out who's poisoning him and gets a lot more than he bargained for. The general's heirs keep dropping like flies and what part, if any, does a mysterious woman in white only Garrett can see play in things?
While I enjoyed this entry in the Garrett Files, it's not as good as the previous two. The first third of the story moves really slowly and most of the general's heirs are little more than cardboard targets for the killer. I did enjoy Morely Dotes's part in things, as well as the return of Djongo and the grolls.
To sum up, I wasn't as enamored with this Garrett Files book as I was the previous two but it's still entertaining and I'm looking forward to the next one.
