I have now played through this story twice and I must say that I have now removed it from my ipod. It truley is rubbish. The story is unbelivable and very random. There is no detective work as such just some huge moments of coincidence that will leave you open mouthed at the fact that the author has tryed to pass it off as part of the story. Maybe as a fan of Sherlock Holmes I am expecting to much from my story book detectives but this book falls so far short of my expectations of what a detective should be that I find it unbarable. On that note, unbarable is the only way to describe about 50% of the characters. They simple seem to be there to annoy you.

The only reason I have given this book 2 stars is that the reading of it is good if not brilliant. I don't think I shall be bothering with any other Innes' book if this is his standard fair.
