Character Development

One great thing about Jim's skill as a writer is his ability to show the many facets of a character. Just when you think you have a character pegged they reveal another side of themselves that makes them all the more intriguing.

You know, it's interesting...

When I start a new series of novels I often find some characters seem lacking in any real character and it takes time before I can hear their distinctive "voices" in my head while I read the novel.

But I must say, right out from the gate - I could hear distinct voices for each character. I thought the characters developed very well through the novel.

The whole Grimm/Ransom thing though, I've seen that exact interaction type done many times before in TV and books, but I still find it fun.
