I found it a very clear book to read. The characters were well drawn and easy to remember, the names were selected well. The period detail was elegantly included: it conjured up another era without eclipsing the more timeless human drama taking place. Scenes that might have been grisly were handled in a way that made them haunting, even poetic.
The language and dialogue also recalled the era vividly, never veering into modern slang.
Abbs was a compelling hero and more of him would be welcome. I'm probably not alone in hoping that a certain romance may come to pass for him in a future novel.
Fans of classic British murder mysteries and vintage mysteries will find much to enjoy here. Despite the dark themes (to be found in any novel of this genre of course) it's a pleasant read, and poignant and times. I will certainly be buying future Abbs novels.
This is my first experience of the enigmatic Inspector Abbs and certainly won't be my last.
The initial intense and concentrated layout of the characters almost put me off at the outset, but with patience, I was soon involved in a gripping and fast moving story.
Many thanks Mr B for an entertaining and satisfying read.
The story is quick-moving,detailed and intriguing and I hope this author has further plans by for Abbs. Mr Bainbridge won't be able to be write them quick enough for me!
..and, no, I didn't guess 'who-did-it' !
