This review is from: The German Money (Paperback)
This book was all back story, horned in at every opportunity, at every other paragraph. Most irritating. You just wanted to get on with things - except that there wasn't anything to get on with. It ultimately centred on a revelation revealed not by any detective work but simply by exposition from a minor character, and thus fell very flat. Cannot understand why author chose this method. Told with a proper front story - the growing suspicions of the family that all had not been as it was purported to have been - it could have proved a most gripping tale, but as it was had sadly little going for it. A real missed opportunity.
