interesting plot; well-drawn characters
slightly melodramatic (*)
The characters have now developed, very fast paced
None (*)
well written, strong characterisation, quietly compelling
slow paced, convoluted plot, weak motivation for villain (*)
Bawdy, vulgar humour matches a frenetic pace and multiple crimes to solve
Not as long or as witty as later offerings (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (C)
Another Connelly, can there be too many?
not enough dead bodies (*)
Good plot, plenty twists and turns.
The main character a little irritating and unbelievable at times. (*)
keeps you guessing till the end with a surprise twist
if you dislike Miss Marple as I do then this is a disadvantage (*)
Gripping, seemingly unsolvable mystery
None (*)
