As I love ballroom dancing and have read some good books by this author I thought I would really enjoy this one,I but it turned out to be one of the most boring I have ever read. There is so much repetition and the characters are so numerous and sketchy that when the identity of the murderer was finally revealed I had to go back through the book to check who he/she was (don't want to spoil that bit for anybody!)in the first place! If you don't mind waiting until chapter 16 for it to move on a bit, and have a really good memory or have time to read it all in one go, then you will probably enjoy it a lot more than I did. I only read to the end on principle!
