Carelessly written, carelessly read.
Having greatly enjoyed the novel 'With no one as witness', I was keen to read another Inspector Lynley mystery. The synopsis of this book looked fine and seemed to follow on, so I bought it. From the outset, the narrator was incredibly irritating as his so-called Cornish accent seem to veer between Ireland, Norfolk, America and anywhere in between. His pronunciation of people's names and place names also changed constantly to the extent I wasn't always quite sure who was who. As for the story… It is hard to believe it's the same author of the book I had read previously. Dreadful, plodding, unbelievable… And Lynley has a fairly minor role. The only decent character is Havers and she only appears in the latter half of the book. This was beyond disappointing. It was dreadful.
