Gaping holes left by poor abridging
I read the book many years ago and the characterisation was superb. Tommy Lynley's longing for his lost love jumped out of the pages as did Barbara Havers' 'diamond in the rough' carapace.
This abridgement stripped all of that away and jumped choppily from one scene to another with the barest of cohesion. Characters were bit parts and a great first introduction to Lynley and Havers was cheapened as a result.
Please, do edit out the St James' though- the series is weakened by their two dimensional presence...
