This review is from: The Gate of Angels (Paperback)
I have come late to Penelope Fitzgerald - beginning with Offshore.
This book has her same sparse funny writing. It felt more stylised than Offshore and reminded me a lot of Iris Murdoch

3.0 out of 5 stars I look for more layers of depth in a murder mystery., 30 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I followed the plot - it carried me along but the characterisation was not so satisfying. Not sure I'd follow this series. I think I look for more layers of depth in a murder mystery.
