I very much enjoyed the first three Alexander Seaton books, but this one was a bit of a let down. There is very little mystery involved and not a lot of plot. Also it has made me rather dislike Alexander Seaton himself. His troubles are the result of his own pompous and self-righteous principles, and if he was a little less stiff-necked the problems he encounters during the last quarter of the book would not have even existed. Therefore, I can't really sympathise with him much, especially as he proved to be such a hypocrite! The first three quarters of the book were pretty boring, and I only persevered on the strength of the previous books, which all had an interesting and intriguing story line.
