2.0 out of 5 stars Uninspired, 11 April 2014
This review is from: Poppet: Jack Caffery series 6 (Kindle Edition)
To write a series of books featuring the same character gives a writer some advantages but also makes demands on their ability to expand their character and let the novels grow. This novel is stale; it really is not going anyehere new or anywhere good. The setting is a rather stereotyped mental hospital which allows a few worn cliches about mental illness to be deployed. I also gives us a murderer who has killed his parents to distract us from the "real" killer. There is the boring ongoing sub-plot of a lost sister-in-law - this allows for a cave diving diversion. And there is a dog. It all adds up to a tedious story badly told.
