Good Points

I found this to be an interesting and unusual plot to choose. Detective Andy Pitt has to unravel the crimes, being able to only follow a series of clues after receiving calling cards in the form of dark blue wizard paintings. I felt that the beginning of the book was a good start, as it launched straight in, while setting up the characters at the same time. Some of the characters, namely the secretary, were well filled-out and believable; whereas others were not. The original idea of the storyline was very cool, and an interesting idea that no-one else has thought of, so I have to give the author a lot of credit for that. I also liked that the author really made the landscape come to life, it was very well-described, and let the reader had a peek into what the town looked like.

Bad Points

The main character seemed a little flat, and it would have been nice to see him a little more multi-dimensional. Also, the book was written in present tense, and yet a lot of the book was in italics for the character's thoughts. This made it seem a little awkward, and it perhaps would have been better if it had been written in first person. Some of the writing seemed a little too clunky, and didn't flow as well as it should have in places.

Overall

This was an interesting idea for a story from this author, and I did like the storyline. The characters were great, but could have done with a little more plumping out. It also might have been nice to see the book in first-person narrative, in order that it could flow better with the thoughts of the main protagonist. Overall, I thought this was an enjoyable read, that could do with a little bit of polishing up.

I give this book......3/5 stars!

A good fast moving plot with believable characters.This is the type of book you can read at one sitting if you are looking for a not too long book and you like a mystery thriller.
