Poorly written and everything is just SO OBVIOUS from a really early point in the book. Yet the main characters just blunder on stupidly and eventually get into a car with a person they now know to be a murderer. People that stupid kind of deserve to die.

Believe it or not, until Easter 1996, I was a Lecturer in Chemistry at The Open University. I carried out research in analytical chemistry, particularly in the area of health, and I taught mainly organic chemistry.
