    The last of this series of seven books centred on painter spy Johnson Johnson Moroccan Traffic is a companion piece to the previous volume the sixth published, but first in internal chronological order Tropical Issue For the first time we see some returning characters other than Johnson and his crewman.This time the focus is business espionage, and the main character is an executive secretary who starts out not particularly appealing due to having listened to far too many How to Win in The last of this series of seven books centred on painter spy Johnson Johnson Moroccan Traffic is a companion piece to the previous volume the sixth published, but first in internal chronological order Tropical Issue For the first time we see some returning characters other than Johnson and his crewman.This time the focus is business espionage, and the main character is an executive secretary who starts out not particularly appealing due to having listened to far too many How to Win in Business motivational tapes She improves, fortunately, and we also get to meet Doris, who is entertaining There is also a surprisingly low amount of sexual assault in this particular volume no attempted rapes, and hardly any groping Quite an improvement.On the whole, although they were interesting enough for me to read through thanks to the range and depth of the protagonists, this isn t a series I would read again Way too much sexual assault generally a cynical attitude towards romance, but just _so much_ assault Too few ongoing links between the individual volumes Johnson is interesting, but not quite enough of a focus of the stories to maintain an ongoing character arc And there s a tendency for our viewpoint character to be withholding a massive piece of information, and for that information to be used as the basis of a near ending twist

    Depending on the order in which you read the books, Rita Geddes either makes an encore appearance in this book or appears for the first time, though not as the protagonist The protagonist is Wendy Helmann, an executive secretary Originally published as Send a Fax to the Kasbah, this was the most difficult to follow for me of all the Johnson books Again, this may be due to personal circumstances I was serving jury duty on a grim homicide case The plot I could track, but not all the off s Depending on the order in which you read the books, Rita Geddes either makes an encore appearance in this book or appears for the first time, though not as the protagonist The protagonist is Wendy Helmann, an executive secretary Originally published as Send a Fax to the Kasbah, this was the most difficult to follow for me of all the Johnson books Again, this may be due to personal circumstances I was serving jury duty on a grim homicide case The plot I could track, but not all the off screen manipulations of the characters I m still not sure who Wendy s mother really was, or whether it mattered It hardly mattered, though I still very much enjoyed the book, though I did have to look up what a kasbah was for it all to make sense Thank goodness for Kindle s dictionary feature This was the only book that I felt left a slightly sour taste in its mouth upon the denouement Namely, Wendy s ultimate decision of her goal in life However, not all characters have to be emblematic of Women, Dunnett has proved herself solid on that front, and it did make sense in terms of the characters.I did think it was very interesting that this book very strongly implies that while we discovered Joanna Emerson loved Johnson in the last book Johnson might very well have loved her back.Of course, that does make sense, with Johnson as a modern day Lymond and Joanna, as noted, the closest thing to Philippa to be found.These are very well written, satisfying mysteries, and I highly recommend them

    I love this series featuring the enigmatic Johnson Johnson, but had a hard time with this particular book the final in the series There were many cryptic decriptions and conversations, and a lot of British slang, that that made me have to WORK to follow the story.
