An easy read, but a bit slow paced for me
8 August 2015
I thought this book was a bit slow and repetitive in places, but then I do like my thrillers,
mysteries, etc. to be action packed. I could have done with less of DCI Tom Stone's budding
romance with Mary and the affair between the Producer of the TV series and his lover, but that
is a personal preference. Other readers obviously like the more gentle pace of this book.
I did like the way that DCI Stone gave credit to his DC and wasn't "prissy" with a DCI colleague
over who should be in charge of an investigation. He just wanted to pitch in and be helpful - which of
course he was!
Although there were several murders, there were no gory details and no explicit sex.
It was an easy read and no glaring typos either, which is a nice change.
