Not for the younger Pullman fan
on 28 March 2014
The usual Pullman skill and intrigue but content not suitable for under 14s in my opinion. The plot revolves largely around smoking opium, including the lead character doing so in order to solve the mystery. Add to that the smattering of colourful language and the murders and it's not a very wholesome read. It's for an older audience with the ability to take a step back and analyse I feel.
