I was a bit worried about this one after reading the many 2 and 3 star reviews. Upon completion, I must agree with seton's comments about it being a cerebral read. It was a wonderful change of pace from the EC books that I had been reading for the past two weeks. Enjoyed the writing and the story. It was a bit of a role reversal with the characters. Phizz/Phoebe was the dominant character throughout the book, even going so far as to rescue herself at the end while the hero, David, remained completely in the dark as to the villain's identity. Four stars for me.
