Caution, mild spoilers ahead.
I was searching for a good detective story outside the circle of the famous classic detective writers, such as A.Christie or A.C.Doyle. And I was extremely satisfied with Ann Granger’s writing in this genre.
The plot was interesting and the premise of the murder mystery not too obvious. Yes, you can guess who the killer is, given the amount of details dropped throughout the story, but there is still a surprise at the end of it all. And a few that you will get during the story.
Now, to the characters. Some of them are not developed enough, as the detective and his wife, even though they are the protagonists. On the other hand, those who played a part in the crime are the most memorable even after the weeks that passed between the moment I finished the book and I am writing this review.
Which is fine, but I would have loved to see more depth to the protagonists who did not allow me to root for the detective during his investigation, nor for his wife who was doing her amount of sleuthing.
All in all, this is an easy read to take with you on a plane or on a short holiday when you don’t want to submerge yourself into a complicated story.
