Good, solid, mystery
This book didn't blow my mind, but it was interesting and I'd read more by the same author. The characters were well drawn out, and the book had a good pace to it.

Held my interest all the way until the ending
Would you listen to Our Lady of Pain again? Why?
Yes, I am almost finished with the third one and have bought the next one. Someone in a review compared her to Donna Leon. Yes, in some ways this is true. In others not, but it does not matter. I love a mystery with strong characterization and sense of place.
What other book might you compare Our Lady of Pain to and why?
Perhaps a Donna Leon, but I do not like to think this way. It seems artificial and counterproductive.
What about Ric Jerrom’s performance did you like?
I mostly like all of it with one tiny complaint. I wish his voice level would not go up so loudly at times and then I must turn the volume down to not wake my spouse and then it goes back to normal and I have to turn it up again. Consistency would be good. This is normal for most USA books, which is why I buy so very few. I haven't found this to be a problem with UK books before now. But, basically, he is really good
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I never answer this question as it is too lame.
Any additional comments?
I hope the author continues to write and that I will have more than the four currently now available. I adore the characters and scenes. Modernity with acute social commentary. Such a worthy series that is also a great read.
