For me, it was perfect and I enjoyed it greatly. Keep these interesting plots and voices coming.
Appreciated the reader. Thank you all. It reads like a classic with an excellent narrator.
Ad infinitum details that are repetitious, uninteresting all put together to go where you know it's going anyway and EVERYthing is grim and there is no likable charachter! Although I found this a good story, I feel I have to comment on the fact that there a lot of scenes where parts of the narration repeat due to sloppy editing. I am used to this happening occasionally, but in this case it was excessive.

James is a world class mystery author. Her plotting, dialogue, and character development are absolutely without equal. Typical PDJames. Baffling, intricate, and totally intriguing. Fabulous narrator. Leads you to a crescendo of emotions. Loved it! When I selected this book I read the reviews and listened to the audio sample. I liked both and bought the book.
