Mana recenzija/My review

Interesants pavērsiens izmeklēšanā, īpatnējs auglis, kas pēc pagatavošanas garšo identiski kā vista, aizved Toniju uz vienu no Mikronēzijas salām, kuras pārvaldība, šķiet, nav no tām demokrātiskākajām, pie reizes.

… wow! Ja par Vol.1 minēju, ka tik traki ar asinīm nav, tad šajā grāmatā apgriezieni palielināti daudzkārtīgi. Kopējā stāstā tiek ievadīti un tiekam iepazīstināti ar dažiem jauniem tēliem, kā arī tiek pievienots pārdabiskā aspekts, ja ar ēdienu vēl nepietika.

(Vēl) jāpiebilst, ka Tonijam piešķir jaunu/veco pārinieku. Tā vien liekas, ka par joku un humora trūkumu nenāksies sūdzēties. Intrigai, Meisons pieminēts garāmejot, un viņa iesaiste un ietekme notikumos varētu nebūt maza.

                                                                                                                                           

An interesting turn in the case, a peculiar fruit which after it’s been cooked tastes just like chicken, brings Tony to one of Micronesia’s island, whose governor doesn’t seem to be on the side of democracy.

… just wow! If I said that Vol.1 wasn’t that gory and bloody then in this volume the action has been turned up a notch. There are few new characters introduced to the story, also a supernatural aspect is added if the food thing wasn’t enough.

Tony receives a new/old partner. It seems that I won’t need to complain for the lack of jokes and humour. And for the intrigue, Mason was mentioned but only briefly; his involvement looks a bit bigger.
