Detective Thomas Nolan has finally returned home. In typical police fashion, he is welcomed home with a murder case and gunfire.

After one arrest goes spectacularly wrong, Tommy is assigned another case and another dead body.

But everything goes wrong from the start of the case. The deceased is a member of a nearby military base, and no one wants to answer his questions. A local bodega gives him mind-splitting headaches. Worst of all, someone is after his children.

To make matters worse — Tommy no longer has his charisms.

    After the more globe-trotting, large scale threats of the ‘second trilogy’, Coven sees Tommy Nolan return to New York and more traditional police and detective work … well, as traditional as a golem-armored thaumaturge dealing with physical manifestations of spiritual evil ever gets. 🙂 Since I enjoyed the first ‘trilogy’ more than the second (they’re all good, mind; I just liked the first three a bit more), this was an enjoyable return to the style I first fell in love with.

    The book continues in the same vein as previous ones–intense and fast-paced action, interesting historical information, detective work with some surprise twists, and the trademark combination of piety and snark we expect from our narrator. Finn takes the viewpoint off of Tommy for a couple of key sequences, and while I think the first one stumbles a bit, the second one flows naturally as a description that’s still recognizably Tommy’s ‘voice’ even if he’s not in the scene.

    Complaints are minor: I was a bit nonplussed by naming the Superior General of the Jesuits “Bergolio”–it seemed a little too on the nose and irreverent. However, further reading made it clear he’s an amalgam of several problems spotted in the Society, not a one-to-one parallel with any specific individual. The villains lacked the strong ideology of previous books that could make them so much fun to hate, being driven more by animus than by positive agendas–which makes sense considering the series to this point and the setup. The one exception is CPS goon Meadowsweet, who’s both got a ‘creed’ and would make a worthy partner-in-injustice to Dolores Umbridge.

    Still, despite those minor quibbles, it’s a fun high-octane, staunchly Catholic thriller that keeps up the series’ tradition. Just don’t skip to the last page first. It won’t give away major plot points, but … Declan, you got some ‘splainin’ to do.
