great 2nd book

I think this is the beginning of zen as a character developing rather than the first book which could have been a one off murder mystery. looking forward to the next book in the series!

Dibdin and Zen and Kitchen...a great combo

The combination of compelling story telling, trenchant humor and delicious characterizations conspire to make this a classic Zen mystery. Michael Kitchen owns this series in his mastery of the ironies and complexities of tone in Dibdin's terrific book.

Elegant

It took me a while to warm up to Kitchen's venomous delivery, but he settled down and the brilliance of Dibden's plotting and characterization took over. Dibden communicates a wonderful sense of place and a subtle humor. While the elegance of his style comes through with every sentence and transcends genre, it took me a while to appreciate the economy of the writing. Worth every minute!
