3.0 out of 5 stars Almost gripping, 26 Dec. 2003

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Almost Blue (Paperback)
I don't know whether it was my expectation of the book or the book itself that left me unsatisfied. It felt like an overlong short story rather than a novel, with characters under-developed and two dimensional. At the same time, I found myself wanting to know more about them. The mix of different narrators was irritating rather helpful, but I don't see how the story could have worked without using the device. Although I wouldn't rush to buy another one by this author, I would be interested in borrowing one to see if the detective (this is apparently a series featuring the same woman) 'grows' both on me and in terms of depth of character.
