Gritty crime novel, with a good pace and lots to keep you interested.
I found main characters from earlier books in the series were poorly described at times (*)
Fast pacy book
Wish I would have read the first book although not essential (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (P)
Superbly wrote. A must read.
Bad language, child abuse. (*)
Good characterisation, perhaps some useful social history
Poor plot, no mystery, rather disturbing and generally unsatisfying (*)
Fascinating mystery cum adventure story combining the past and the present
None (*)
Facinating story
Long Chapters!! (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (F)
Wonderfully unique way of telling an excellent story
A epilogue would have been useful (*)
A great debut crime novel set in London
not compelling, poor/weak ending (*)
Formulaic person gets murdered and our protagonist sets out to solve the murder.
see advantages as it depends what you like. (*)
Characters and the unpredictability of the story.
Slow going and hard to believe (*)
A very entertaining read.
Possibly will not appeal to all. (*)
