“As mysteries go, this was completely average. I think Harris has a decent concept here, and potentially interesting characters, but I think this book was designed to set up the rest of the series. The actual mystery part of this book was weak and predictable.
I definitely recognized some of Harris's pet themes. Missing or dysfunctional parents, a "secret" ability scorned by society, a fascination with hair combing. It was OK. I'd try another in the series, but if it doesn't end up better than this, I wouldn't continue.
I did see that this series is being developed as a TV series on Syfy. ”
