Read in February, 2012

The first quarter of this is a rollicking, gripping read, and I was all set to love it. As it turns out, the rest of the plot is quite a lot more pedestrian, and so four stars seems just a little-little bit generous, but nevertheless the hook still kept me gripped to the end, the writing throughout is fresh and engaging, the characters from main to minor are both interesting and entirely convincing, and there are moral questions beneath the surface akin to those of Crime and Punishment that engage a part of the brain most books don't even dare to flirt with.

I bought this for my missus for Christmas, and after reading it she went out and bought the first Ghote mystery to follow it up. I think I'll ask if I can borrow it when she's done.
