Ok but Series Is Running Out Of Stream
29 April 2019
This is better than some so called thrillers I’ve read recently but certainly not a gushing ‘wow’. The writing is very good. However, the storyline(s)) are rather predictable. One thread is easily guessed, at an early stage and the other is flogging a dead rat, insomuch as ‘it’s’ been going on since the series start. Also, as another reviewer has said, the on off relationship between the two main characters has gone on too long- either get on with it or enough, already.
Thread one is the investigation of mentally disturbed persons whose suicides are questionable. The other thread is the investigation of two men who have a connection with D.I. Luc Callanach via his mother.
On the whole, this isn’t bad at all, just spoiled a little by repetitive themes and the predictable plot. I’m of the opinion that the series has had it’s day.
