I went back and read the first book of the Eddie LaCrosse Series. What a lot of fun!
It's a very fast read. That makes a book even more enjoyable for me. It has a good flow. I don't think I hit any point where the story lagged.
It has nibbles of folklore and anachronistic dialog and coy little pokes at pop culture. But the core of it is a closed room mystery, which he solves quite handily. All the loose ends are neatly tied up at the end. No nasty cliff-hangers here. I like that.
