An interesting read - in a journalistic style
on 23 July 2013
I bought the book after hearing two episodes of a radio adaptation and missing the concluding episodes. You can very much tell the author was a newspaper editor by his writing style. This is not necessarily a bad thing but bear this in mind if you are not so keen on this style being sustained throughout a full book.
The mystery itself is intriguing but the conclusion, rather unfulfilling. I would love to have seen this rewritten like the Suspicions of Mister Whicher.
