    I loved the first book, Marlowe and the Spacewoman, so eagerly snapped up this sequel as soon as I spotted it was out (which was some time after it was published - book promotion doesn't seem to be the author's strong point!). Balloons of the Apocalypse sees the return of sleuth Marlowe, sidekick Nina and most of the villains and supporting characters from the first novel. The setting is a futuristic yet down-trodded America, where the 'Big Fed' has fallen and the land is ruled by city states. The novel has a wonderfully-inventive storyline involving a Beethoven-worshipping cult, with many twists and turns. The humour is less evident than in the first book but this is still a good, fun read. A minor quibble is that the ebook formatting wasn't brilliant, but overall it was a good read. I look forward to the next one...
