Read in July, 2008

Chock-full of Literary British Mystery cliches, including little mini-chapters written from the point of view of various characters (just to give a little insight in to the mis-en-scene, you know, and maybe drop a few red herrings) which just happen to include a senile alcoholic and an indeterminately mentally ill person-- so intense and gritty! Take the embarrassingly stereotyped Japanese victim/suspect duo, the familiarly tortured romantic relationship between the main character and the main detective (hello? Lynley and Helen anyone?), add in some seriously labored prose, and there you have it. I'm sad, cuz I don't have much else around to read tonight.
