Review by: Rene Lathrop-Nethercot on Oct. 12, 2012 :
I enjoyed the book, but found parts too slow. Until the end, there was very little action. It was more of a sleuthing novel. Taken in that tone, it was well-written with many different characters. I think the amount of characters made many of the principles underwhelming. When one of the key people shows up at the end, and you can't remember where you saw him the first time, it's frustrating. All in all though a good tale with a lovable main character. I think I'd read another of this books.

Nice, light reading, entertaining, funny in places, and quite different from most mysteries. The plots were a bit thin but the author made the most of them and carried the day. I, for one, would read Winter's next.
