The Third Curse is another great book in the Longevity Law Enforcement series For a change of pace Hunter has stepped back in time and given us a look at the early years of Detective Chris McGregor including his pairing with Detective meg Dalton a rookie at this point in the past Since this is the early days of LLE we are privy to many discussions that give us an idea of the ethical uestions these Detectives had to deal with as they picked their way through the complexities of a society that was tearing apart from the jarring implications brought on by Longevity science Ultimately we also see how LLE begins to develop its own brand of justice This is an interesting time to explore such ethical uestions even as here in the United States we are wrestling with the ethical uestions that arise from our struggles against terrorism and the often heavy handed responses that come out of that McGregor is fleshed out in this book though he still remains a bit of a mystery His cold pragmatism is understandable since the specter of his wife s death is far fresh in his memory I think this has a great impact on his views of justice as well Dalton a detective we see in limited sections of the first three books of the series gets as much page time as McGregor this time around While there are similarities between her and Livy McGregor s partner from the first three books Dalton is certainly a different partner for the withdrawn McGregor She is combative willing to stand up and fight for her job as partner which McGregor is unwilling to allow She eventually breaks down his reticence and together they accomplish their goalsHunter continues to build a fantastic world and through these characters continues to explore the radical changes in society that have come out of the new science of Longevity The Third Curse is great fun and thought provoking all at the same time
