liked it. Dimitri and Nick in one book, bliss. Maybe the end was a bit rushed and pat, but it did me fine. I had heard that Nick was going on the back burner and the Dimitri Karras/Marcus Clay story line was being taken up, but I may be wrong(I usually am ) And, John, my husband has just read Motherless Brooklyn(yes he liked it lots) and commented that the Tourette's of the main character was just like living in our house, our oldest has ADD and is prone to comments apropos of totally nothing and has his own catalogue of tics.But he loves reading, so hopefully he'll be on the Chandlers before too long.Are there any hardish boiled books for older children?
