Too much history. not enough detection
on 12 November 2012
I generally enjoy Kerry Greenwood's books and this was still a gripping read, but I felt that the author was trying to air her acquired knowledge to the disadvantage of the plot. I like authors who do their research properly (and many of them appear not to)but this book tended to drift too much into academic pursuit. Still it gets three atars and will not deter me from reading more.
