More or less my thoughts exactly. I always have the sneaking suspicion that perhaps the author never wanted that installment to be released, or had widely different ideas to what was done, neither of which can ever truly be confirmed or denied. That said, regardless of whether I would like it or not, one book does not ruin the perfect run that was the first four, and the fifth didn't do all that well either. In fact, my local book shop doesn't even have it on the shelves.
