I’m surprised that this book has received so many good reviews. I thought it was a decent mystery but not a great one. In this kind of mystery there’s often a wise cracking cynical protagonist, but in this book every character talks that way. The dialogue was the same clever sarcastic ramble no matter who was talking. There are some good plot twists and the author made the setting interesting by pointing out the history of each building and street. Several reviewers liked this book but unfortunately it’s not really a book I can recommend.
