Actually a 3.5 star. I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I liked the main character and I liked the mystery but the pacing of the book was a little slow for me. Black likes words and uses them well but I sometimes felt like he was trying to build mood at the cost of the plotting.

The setting was wonderful though and I think there was enough there that I might try book 2. If you like faster paced mysteries this book will not be for you.,

Julianna I couldn't agree with you more. Quirke was well named, his character was interesting. I felt as if there were too many characters, and by chapter 23 I was waiting for the plot to really reveal itself. By the end I muttered to myself, "well of course... did it!"

C.S. Daley It left me a little disappointed.
