This book was a bit of a struggle for me to get into. (1) The author introduces every suspect and nearly every character in the first three pages of the book. (2) Most of the characters are from the same family and share a last name. This, however, does not prevent the author from referring to them as Mr. Maxie, Dr. Maxie, etc. (3) It's a British novel. The vocabulary and sentence structure were surprisingly foreign to me. Because of the way it was written I automatically placed it in the nineteenth century. It is supposed to take place in 1962. That being said, I love Adam Dalgliesh, and I love P. D. James. I can't wait to read the next book.
