Top critical review
26 January 2018
I have read all the previous books in this Roy Grace series, and have enjoyed them very much, though I feel that the author has started to become too descriptive of even the most mundane things. However I found this book too silly to be believable, and some of the things included were obviously slotted in just to fill up the storyline. And we were expected to believe some fairly daft things. The killer from the previous book managed to escape from an underground roof collapse, and then again from a jail. The hit man from a previous book turned up again even though he had previously been believed driwned. And we are supposed to believe that Potting, slovenly, boring, rude and crude is actually a trained undercover agent and can pass as a well-dressed, well-spoken billionaire. Still it fitted in with the story, so it doesn't matter how silly it is does it. All very disappointing.
