So confusing, unlike the previous three

disappointing and confusing
Fewer characters, a less confusing plot.
It was OK but not brilliant.
Deep disappointment. I had enjoyed Nicola Upson's other Tey books but this one was so confusing I found it really hard to know what was going on. If I'd had a physical book I could have flipped back to see who was who and what was what, but with a huge cast of characters, many of whom seemed quite implausibly related, I just couldn't work it all out. What a shame.
