    The author, being a librarian, must have read a great number of books (and I could feel it throughout the book), thus deserving a praise. However, I did not feel a close connection with the book or its characters. The author used a lot of description and less dialogues, thus overburdening the process of reading and taking from the reader the possibility of judging and/or understanding the character without any bias.

    This took me a while to get into but then it just flew. I found it a really light read and perfect for PT reading. I'll admit I'm not hanging to get other books in the series however if I came across them I'd likely purchase. I think the main reason for this is that it was the secondary characters which I personally found more intriguing rather than Mr Stroop (and company)

    I am nominating this book for the "worst opening" sentence in a novel award - "Dawn breathed a line of light the colour of quinces across the sea's grey and slumped horizon, bled a little red towards the east, where the sun would soon-time rise, spread the sandstone cliffs to gold and shadow." The color of quinces!!!!

    I read this twice! I'd forgotten it. It is a brilliant book with a really rip-roaring story. There is lots of mystery and mayhem afoot and yet its keenly observed with a focus on dainty details that really add to the story.
