    1.5 starsOnce again I expected , and once again I find myself dissatisfied It takes forever for the mystery to begin in full force Georgie is repetitive, whiny, and incredibly dense Like the first book, she doesn t really solve anything but gets thrown into the answer by the villain s actions always conveniently at the right time place On top of that, the writing was jarring The choice of words from characters, the incredible articulation of anti communist proponents, and all the haha, Adolph Hitler didn t seem to fit with the plot at all Either this is the 1930s or its not What I disliked the most, however, is the constant bombardment about sex It is a topic of conversation from almost every character and it is very much obnoxious and crude Even minor characters are thrown into awkward and horrible situations In fact, I think I might be done with this se...
