Not Forgotten

The first original Angel novel sees Angel investigating a series of murders in Los Angeles, all of which seem to have been caused by a form of spontaneous combustion.  And, of course, the LAPD's investigating officer just happens to be Kate Lockley.

Meanwhile, a job-hunting Cordelia meets up with an Indonesian businessman who just happens to own a film studio, then a group of child pickpockets before getting locked up.

Unsurprisingly, the events are all linked, with someone intent on making sacrifices to the Indonesian god Latura, in the usual quest for immortality.  Unfortunately, I found the guest characters involved completely uninteresting, even more so than those in the average Buffy novel.

Of course, things wouldn't be complete without some flashbacks to pad things out.  Not Forgotten features plenty of these, including Angel in Ireland prior to become a vampire - although just why he's called Angelus in these scenes is a bit of mystery, especially when the flashback ended with the statement that he will soon become Angelus.

Overall, not the best start to the Angel original fiction range then.  It's not bad, but it's not that good either.
