Ice Run

Ice Run is the sixth Alex McKnight book by Steve Hamilton.  I've really enjoyed all the others, but this one was very weak on a lot of levels.  The romance between Alex and his new girlfriend never rings true, the characters feel like they've become more fluffy and blurred around the edges, and the plot is byzantine for no real good reason -- there are at least half a dozen points where the whole thing would've been short-circuited if characters just talked to each other.

I've like all the other books, so I'll probably give the next one a shot, especially since it seems to be the last one.
