Top critical review
Disappointing, but do read the others in the series, leaving this one out… it doesn't add anything.

The review by 'Lou' says it all for me - the writing has lost its light touch, and is repetitive and laboured, in sad contrast to the masterly style of the earlier novels. 'Falling' published in 2011 was great, but otherwise I have felt sad to see the deterioration in EJH's later years. It has made me want to get on with my own writing now, before it is too late. But maybe some other authors continue to write brilliantly into their eighties. I'd be interested in other reviewers' thoughts on this.
