This was enjoyable, but it wasn't as good as the other Cool & Lam novels I've read so far.I like the fact that Donald blundered a bit in this one, touches like that once and a while really help to make his character more believable—people really are fallible, and I appreciate it when authors remember that.Not that I want it all the time, but every so often I feel like it adds something to a series/character.
I agree with the other reviewer who mentioned that this one really did lack something in the characterization of the "supporting cast", and I never found myself caring very much what happened to any of them.A definite draw back in any book.Also, my other main complaint, is how much ink was spent on the Donald & Elsie friendship/relationship.It made the book feel more generic-mystery novel of the age (boy solves case, boy gets/wants secretary)
But Donald was still a solid character, and this is the entry in the series where he forces Bertha to make him an equal partner.
I did find Donald & Bertha's interactions to be very well done, in general, in this book; more enjoyable (better balance of bickering and banter) than some of the others I've read.
Just another note, I believe this is the only book in the series where Donald wins a fist-fight.
