I borrowed this book because when I was searching for a library copy of In Vino Veritas by Julie Thomas, this one popped up (along with several others also with the same title. As this one is part of a series I thought I'd try it out and see if I thought I might recommend the series to my mother, who's always looking for good detective stories.

First in the Lambert and Hook series. Book is unusual in that all suspects for a yet to be committed murder are introduced with their various motives. This beginning is long and not all that interesting with selfish or uninteresting characters. After Lambert and Hook are more prominently featured, the book moves a little quicker and becomes more interesting. Almost gave up on this one.
This book got a low rating because it took over a hundred pages for the crime to be committed, and I was so aggravated at that point I almost quit before finishing it. Nor did I like the solution all that much--it probably should have gotten a single or half a star.
