Having read nearly all of Crusie’s other books before getting to this, I found it kind of a neat embryonic form of her later work. Here she’s trying out tropes and techniques that she brings to perfection in books like Tell Me Lies. Overall a quick and satisfying read, so long as you let yourself go with the seriously high-current flow. Also, it’s a fun glimpse back to the early 90s!
