Indeed. I'm pretty quick to give up on a book if it drags for too long (I've never gotten out of Tom Bombadil's forest in LoTR....) but I don't feel CC fell into this category. I got past the opening poetry and Robin's engagement thrills, which was, in retrospect, important to appreciating her later decisions, and once she met Strike, I thought things moved along just fine.

Or at least tthink abot shooting

Not many books have even a dead body by page three, but probably more than half of the authors I favour write kick-ass books. I know havoc will be wreaked and vengeance will ensue before I open the book

Explosions definitely count. Fist-fights, a couple of flashes of knives; they're all good. I'm really quite flexible.

You should read Vertical Run by Joseph Garber. It starts off with his boss trying to kill him and escalates from there.
