This story, the 46th installment in the series and the 9th book for me, was significantly better than the other 8 I have read. As I have stated in other reviews of this series, Alex Archer is a pen name for a collection of several authors that the publisher uses for the Rogue Angel series. The true author for each book is mentioned inside the front cover on the copyright page but nowhere else. This book, "Sunken Pyramid" was written by Jean Rabe, who has penned only 3 others in the series.
I found this book more readable, the descriptions better, the character portrayals more clearly written, a little more gritty and done in a way that captured the humanity, both good and bad, especially well of each of the characters, especially of the 3 primary characters, Annya, Garin and Roux.
My appreciation for the quality of the writing of this story was especially keen because I had just read no. 43 in the series, "Clockwork Doomsday" which I found to be especially lacking in charm and likeability.
To compare, I would give Clockwork Doomsday a 2.5 and I gave Sunken Pyramid a 3.5.
I am wondering how far the publisher intends to take the series. No. 49 has been announced but no farther than that. Perhaps they will end at 50, or maybe they will continue on indefinitely to 60, 70 and beyond. Whatever they do, I would dearly love to get more insight into the background of the 3 primary characters and especially of Garin and Roux.
