There's a certain feeling I get with the series and this book gives me that same feeling. I'm happy and look forward to Frost's writing. I'm more of a Frost man than a Lynch man as the years go by.

Absoloutely, I was kind of put off the book from the lukewarm reaction it seems to have gotten, but having almost finished it I think it's brilliant.
Whilst not the ''big reveal'' everyone was kind of expecting I think it's great.
On a sidenote I had a thought today whilst reading the rest of the novel. As we know there are many instances of events/characters that are ''twinned'' or dopplegangers in the show, if not literally then thematically. For example we all know there is an evil Leland and a good Leland (possibly) literally, as well as themeatic mirroring within the narrative (Bob and Mike i.e the spirits mirrored by Bob and Mike the humans, name wise at least.)
The description of the dossier at the beginning is very reminiscent of the two mill account books Catherine created in the series. It seems to have the same awkward rectangular shape and is the same dark green colour:
But what if that goes beyond just a visual link. Catherine used the two green ledgers to deceive others around her to cook the mills books. What if the dossier we are reading isn't the only one. Much like Catherine used the 2 ledgers to change facts and figures, I believe the ''Secret History'' we are reading is possibly an edition of 2, the other being the ''Real'' history of Twin Peaks. This would account for all the (intentional) inconsistencies and forged documentation within. It still doesn't solve who is trying to deceive whom though.
Ooh! Good catch! I wonder if it's just a coincidence...
