Disappointing given the predominance of good reviews
on 11 March 2014
I persevered with this book, hoping it would improve and engage my imagination. Given the predominance of good reviews and distinct lack of poor ones, I began to wonder if the fault was with me, as I am an avid reader of good crime fiction set in the Victorian era.
Sadly, I've given up - the plot fails to engage, the characters are flat, one dimensional and uninteresting, the descriptive detail and writing style annoying - there are far better books out there which deserve my attention.
