After a dull middle of the book, there are some quickfire twists and reveals at the end, which do tie things together.
I loved "X" and may persevere and try another by this author.
It is always hard when reading follow-ups to much-loved books. So often enjoyment founders on the rocks of expectation. Had I not loved Suspect X perhaps I would have been more forgiving. Suspect X is a novel that's perfectly paced and seamlessly plotted with great characterisation. It's impossible not to love. Here, whilst the crime is elegant, the pacing is flat and the characters flatter.
The mystery here revolves around a businessman, found dead from drinking poisoned coffee. The most likely suspect, his wife was hundreds of miles away when he died. If it was her, how did she do it? There are a few other possibilities, but everything points to the cool collected wife. I liked Suspect X, because it was clean and simple. The crime was neat, there was no sensationalist gory violence. And so it is here, but it's almost too clean. There are few clues, and the main source of investigation is where the water came from; filtered, bottled or tap? It's hardly the stuff of legend.
Added to this are flat characters. Ciphers. Jilted wife, young mistress, arrogant and meticulous victim. Even the police officers are dull. The lead investigator's supposed infatuation with the prime suspect, was utterly unconvincing, again in complete contrast to Suspect X.Read more ›
