I started out really not caring for this book, but then the author did what he always does and makes the characters so interesting that you want to know more and more about them. Lydia is not a sympathetic character, nor is she really mean to be, but the story surrounding that comes out after the murder is really enjoyable to read.

Robert Barnard is fast becomming my favorite British mystery author. In his books (the ones I've read so far) murder is always an outcome of tense family dynamics, which he delineates with great subtlety.

Robert Barnard takes a look at a personality trait in a woman that affects all the people around her and eventuates in a circumstance leading to murder. It is a subtle well done story.
