The Inquisitor's Key by Jefferson Bass

3.5 stars
R- 2.5
Copy received for review


A Da Vinci Code-ish case-- interesting certainly, but one too many twists at the end, I thought.  And it suffers from a lack of our normal supporting cast (again) but at least Miranda is in this one... mostly.

The shifting perspectives (a completely new device for this series) made it a bit disorienting (probably largely because of the newness.... wouldn't have been bad if they'd been doing that all along).

NO real resolution for Garcia (tiny bit implied).  Crappy pretended resolution for Isabella (talk about sweeping a difficult plot point under the rug.... wow).

Would have only gotten 3 stars, but got the extra 1/2 for the art history stuff.
