He’s not trying to device the reader in the same way. The unanswered questions are for the protagonist too this time. Presumably there will be some kind of subterfuge; the series is going to need surprises again at some point. And there are a couple little ones. Returning cast members, the way the lead, Jackson, travels from the tropics to Las Vegas. But Williamson is clearly trying a different approach.

Jackson has a case, adventure, undertaking, whatever. Even with his baggage, he’s in control differently. It’s like a soft reboot–Williamson has the pilot arc out of the way.

It’s not earth shattering, but good.
