THE JANUS AFFAIR
MINISTRY OF PECULIAR OCCURRENCES BOOK 2
HARPER COLLINS VOYAGER
MAY 29, 2012
Wellington Books and his junior archivist, Eliza Braun are back in action! This adventure begins with them being in the wrong (or perhaps right) place at the wrong time, when they witness the mysterious disappearance of a young woman from a train. And it so happened to be a young woman Eliza had met. When more disappearances occur, and an old, dear friend of Eliza’s from New Zealand is nearly taken, the two archivists take things personally and begin to look into the situation.
As they try to figure out the mysterious device that causes people to disappear in a flash of light, they discover misdeeds of a field agent who has been recently promoted. Their investigation takes many twists and turns, and even a few wrong directions, but for the reader, the journey is the greatest fun.
The sophomore follow up to the stellar Phoenix Rising last year, The Janus Affair is just as much fun as the first. Non-stop excitement coupled with character growth and a sparkling cast of supporting characters, this is a quick, enjoyable read. I would dearly love to meet Books and Braun in real life. They are both strong, fascinating characters. I can't wait for the next installment of their adventures.
