Eyelids, not Liars. All I meant was that the last page or so set up scenarios for future possibilities. Sort of like a TV pilot episode, at the end of which we can see how this situation is going to give us a story every week. (I still think Eyelids would make a terrific 2-hour movie-of-the-week -- suspenseful and humorous but not bloody -- after which all our protagonists are poised for new jobs which will afford them Wacky Adventures together.)
Somehow I got this feeling much more here than in the first Reluctant Op, which felt like more of a stand-alone. Purely a personal reaction and maybe nobody else shares it.
