An idea gone wrong,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aberystwyth Mon Amour (Paperback)
The retro cover of the book suggests a hard-bitten private detective of the old school. True, as the character unfolds - which it does with creaking slowness - we do find that he is only marginally successful, has a shabby office and is well-acquainted with the streets. However, the book has a poor narrative pace and seems to have been loosely bolted together from random ideas that the author seems to have picked at random. The end of the book is botched and childish.
A neat idea gone badly wrong.
