If you’ve been following along, Part 3 had me in a holding pattern, unsure if I was going to fork over the little bucks to continue or just wait until the whole shebang gets published as a box set.
Well, despite saying I wasn’t totally invested (I lied) and quibbled about editing (it’s my day job) and said my two cents, in point of fact, it’s Brandon Shire and he could probably pen an alien phone book and I’d buy and read it, so yeah. I did. I bought it and read it in one sitting.
And boy howdy, talk about redeeming yourself with a reader on the fence. Holy mother of pearl. Plots within plots, people aren’t who or what they seem, and the monolithic personalities of both Sid and Jack take a few hits in this installment that lead me to believe they are going to need each other more than any of us know or can predict at this stage.
But the possibilities! The machinations and political maneuvering! The behind the scenes pulling strings! The hot sex! This is a House of Cards that’s on a shaky foundation, and both Team Jack and Team Sid are going to have to get their collective heads out of the sand (or their asses but that’s not so very ladylike to say that) and start dealing with the big and the bigger picture.
Or get buried.
Recommendation: Wow. Start a casting couch ‘cause I’m seeing FX or Showtime in the future.
