  • I've read worse

    There were sufficient elements I enjoyed about this pretty standard procedural to make me think the second book might be worth checking out. I especially liked the very unremarkable nature of the leads.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Not my cuppa

    2.5 stars is my verdict on this book. Where to start on this? I chose that book as it was advertising itself as a traditional British mystery and I was expecting something in the style of Agatha Christie but what I found is a very pale imitation. The story turns around 2 coppers and a group of people gathered at a vicarage for a weekend. The group of « Toffs » as one of the copper keeps saying is there to have a good time with the vicar but their fun is marred by the murder of one of the guest which brings the 2 unlikable coppers on the scene; one of the 2 being a leecherous man obsessed with women too young for him. Not long after, the host is killed and the plot supposedly thickens but to me the culprit became obvious and the 2 coppers are still struggling with their investigation. To add unnecessarily to the plot, is the dead of a second guest that is never really explained. Overall, the leech proves to have half a brain when he finds the missing piece to the puzzle a few dozens of pages too late. Try as I might, the only character that appealed to me in the book is the pathologist and she is barely there. The End was my joyful moment in reading this book. I apologize to the author for the harshness of my comments but I thing a little less useless side stories would do that story good as would a little less bitterness on the part of the coppers. As my Brit friends would say, this book was not my cuppa.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An irritating and disappointing read

    I did not enjoy the story. The plot was ok, but all the characters were unpleasantly portrayed. The author wrote from a pedestal, looking down on a series of unpleasant puppets. None of the characters had any real connection to any others, nor any real feelings except selfishness. With a bit more humanity in their portrayal and a bit of kindly humour, rather than nastiness, it could have been a passable book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Boring

    This book was supposed to be about the police investigation into a murder or two, but it never seemed to progress beyond the finding of the bodies. I found it boring and gave up half-way through.
