ugh - some bits are good, but this one is too destructive for me. not dark in a compelling way, for me.

I don't know how often you have to have the detective fail badly, destructively, in these series, to keep the reader from feeling we're reading the same script again and again. bit I don't think that's enough for me to go with an ending like this.

I am a Pollyanna in these matters, or whatever would be a more neutral term for that.
