Harper Perennial (2005), Paperback, 928 pages
|This is the second last book in the Baroque Cycle and its good to see so many diverse plot elements being wrapped up. It does feel like Neal is going to have to work pretty hard to get them all wrapped up in just one more book -- especially at the pace that these books move at. This book focuses on Daniel's adventures in London, although the usual suspects are of course present. An enjoyable read.
