Though the main story ends, this book has the worst possible cliffhanger ever. So I suggest you wait for [b:The Revenant Express|16001052|The Revenant Express|George Mann|/assets/nocover/60x80.png|21762495] before you start reading this book. You're welcome. I am so mad. I hate cliffhangers!

Short summary: Newbury and Hobbes are helping Charles Bainbridge with a serial killer case. The victims are all left without heart. That's the main story. There is a threat of conspiracy among the agents of the Crown and nobody knows who or what the murderer is.
And, as if that weren't enough, Newbury has been hunted by a cult, his health is deteriorating because he is helping Veronica's sister and Veronica seems to distrust pretty much everyone which is one of the things that move the story forward. Near the end she and Newbury keep coming to places at different times, they keep delaying their conversation about very important issues. They leave it all for later.

It doesn't matter what I type here because I am still under the impression of that damn cliffhanger. Why didn't I read the reviews?
