Game Over - I think it is with this one !
on 11 August 2009
I have really enjoyed the Slider mysteries - just clever enough to keep you guessing, a bit of background humour with the main police characters and usually a well thought out plot.
Sadly with this book, I found the plot so convoluted and with so many names that appeared without much background story to them, that it was hard to grasp their part in the story - or for that matter to be interested in them.
The other 'police' side I found rather unbelievable - this is meant to be a murder mystery not a Mills and Boon novel.
I wont give up just yet and hope that the next Slider, due out soon, will be a return to form.
