One more in Graham Thomas's series on Detective Chief Superintendent Erskine Powell's search for the killers in somewhat obscure murders. Is it suicide? Or, is it murder tied to political aspirations?

It started off in a promising new summery mystery series sort of way, then it was almost like Thomas got bored and had to sew the plot up higgledly-piggledly at the end... I hated the constant red-herrings about the murder - he did he didn't he's really very reasonable he did he didn't... Gah.

Nice mix of plots and characters. Also interesting to see murder without guns of the main weapon. Also interesting to see escape without guns. Missed some sort of fishing expedition in this one but very much enjoyed the read anyway.

I found the story somewhat uninteresting. And, this is the 2nd book I've read in the series, the fact that the police inspector again gets in 'dire' trouble at the end, didn't make me a fan.

I found quite a few typos, which annoy me. And I didn't particularly like Powell. I also didn't find the solution overly probable or enjoy the parts that dealt with British politics.

A speedy read that reminded me quite a bit of Agatha Christie or some of the tv crime shows I'm tragically addicted to. Just fun to read.

Although a good pool read, sometimes it got mired in the politics and minor details of the mystery instead of the overall mystery.
