>I would definitely agree with this. I actually had a friend warned me about the gender issues when I got into the first book, and in the first books there is very much a noir detective kind of relationship with women. They are all sexy, and they are all either victims or femmes fatales. I think by mid-series that has very much changed, and the female characters are all much more appealing and richly drawn. They are all still sexy, but they are also people.
