Read from June 06 to 29, 2011

As an avid AMS fan, I have to say that I was a little disappointed with this book. I have loved all his novels I've read to date but for some reason this one just didn't get going for me. I love Edinburgh and so the location of the setting appealed to me, but I just didn't really warm to any of the characters (other than Bertie but I didn't think we saw enough of him). I found the Dominica storyline in the Malacca Straits a little far fetched. The reintroduction of Lard O'Connor could have been interesting but was down played, and Irene was infuriating (although I think that's intentional).

I think the very short chapters also didn't help me, I just couldn't get into the story at all. It's taken me all month to read it! I have 2 more from this Scotland Street series on my bookshelves and I'm hoping they're a bit better.
