I had read "The Sea" by this author and abandoned it because the characters were so un-likeable, but I found this mystery much easier to stomach. The characters were still pretty self-sbsorbed, including the protagonist/truth elucidator, but it just went down much more easily because he WAS trying to solve a mystery, and in the face of a lot of oppostion, so it gave me more sympathy for him. And after all the quick slick mysteries out there, it was nice to read one with multi-layered people, good psychology and good writing. There were some developments at the end I didn't quite buy, but I did stay up late for two nights reading, and I was pretty satisfied at the end. So, four stars.

TheGirlBytheSeaofCortez I like the Benjamin Black books, Heidi, but I haven't read this one because it deals with a midwife. Anything to do with childbirth puts me off, makes me queasy. I don't dislike children, only the means of bringing them into the world.
