Good plot but I think this detective needs to get a grip on his emotions
on 26 January 2014
I quite enjoyed this and thought the plot and the Hull setting was excellent.
My big problem was the lead character McAvoy who has so many quirks and just too much sensitivity to be believable. People are in awe of his goodness and I found him too "complex" to be likeable. I didn't actually like him that much and thought he should get a grip on his emotions or change jobs.
This book just did not work for me but I had to keep reading to find out what happened.
