Short story rather than a novel, overpriced and badly written
on 24 January 2016
The idea for this book is great, it sounds like a book I should love. A detective, a psychic, a mystery, a moody rural location and a bit of romance. But the writing made me cringe at times. Some of the language at the start of the book seemed like a poor attempt at old fashioned writing. For a while I thought it was set in Victorian times, them I realised I was wrong and the language changed. But it was clumsy writing all the way through.
I felt cheated when I realised it's only 80 pages long. I've recently paid the same price for some amazingly good full length novels and in comparison this is very poor value. It should be marketed as a short story, not a novel. As with all short stories, it just gets going and then it's over.
