Only slightly, only slightly less than I used to

So the reviews for The Foreign Correspondent, Alan Furst's new one, aren't that great. The NYT's Janet Maslin has a long review, but I can't tell if she likes it or not. USAToday says long time readers might find it a "bit too familiar." The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel just comes out and says "it's not as good as his previous books." The question is, is it Combat Rock not as good, or is it Cut the Crap not as good? I am betting on Combat Rock, not that differentiated but worth consuming. I'll get to this one, but not as soon as I thought I would.
