I enjoyed Robertson's first novel, Instruments of Darkness, but was disappointed by Anatomy of Murder. Very slow moving, especially in the first three-quarters of the book. For a mystery novel there were too many irrelevant details about opera, naval warfare, and Jane Austen-esque descriptions of English family life. And too many characters from her first novel inserted themselves into this one without moving the plot much, just adding to a bewildering cast of characters. If you want a tour of Eighteenth Century London, with a scent of murder to keep you flipping pages, though, this book is for you
