Middle Of The Road
on 11 May 2012
I'd like to have given this book more stars, but it is one of the less strong offerings in the series. I have the rest in prospect now, but am getting a bit Colbeck weary, so will go onto something different for a while - probably a Jim Stringer, as I think that too much Colbeck at once is showing up a fundamental weakness that these stories are somewhat formulaic. I am not sure about the "twists" in the final few chapters, and I feel that some of the key characters could have been introduced sooner - it would not have spoiled the narrative one iota to do so, and I for one would have enjoyed the read more as a result.
All in all, not the best to date, but not bad enough to put me off reading the rest of the series.
