Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this was a nice idea, but it was let down by authors who can't write. They did the research alright, and boy did they let you know it. Facts about the era in which the book is set are dropped in with monotonous regularity. Unfortunately, they forgot that the forst Frost book appeared in the seventies.
As for the dialogue, it was nothing like Mr Wingfields. Mullet was almost polite to our hero, and the PCs treated him in a completely different way..

This item was not intended for the UK market as the language on the screen was set to German with no option to change it to English. Useless.

2.0 out of 5 stars In this one it's even worse. She has a new editor and it shows, 15 Jan. 2015

If you've seen my review of 'Believing The Lie' you'll know my thoughts about Miss Georges writing. In this one it's even worse. She has a new editor and it shows. This book is her longest yet at 720 pages. It is written in part in Italian; the Lord knows why. I know it is set mostly in Italy, but the reader should be able to understand what he, or she, is reading. The book also appears to have been written by a foreign English student, with the prose so precise and unnatural sounding, which made it difficult to read.
She also commits the unpardonable sin of lying to her readers. She does this when she puts Barbara Havers through hell, causing her, we are lead to believe, that she is putting her career in jeopardy. We even her her thinking as she does so. But then at the end of the book we find that she was on a mission at the behest of her Superintendent. As I say, that is unforgivable.
Having said that I am still eagerly awaiting the next 'Linley.'

only two stars? This is because although the story was a cracker, it was over long and badly written. OK, I now this sounds like heresy when talking about a writer as popular as this one, but her dialogue is atrocious. She is an American trying too hard to sound like a Brit. She deliberately adds superfluous words to many sentences so that the book is at least a hundred pages too long. It's as if she is being paid by the word.

Sharon Small is one of my favourite actors and for me she makes the series. The series as a whole is well produced and the stories are excellent.
