Good tale, well written

Lawton has obviously read most of the great literature, and learned to write exceptionally well because of it. This is a very entertaining story. I look forward to the next.

This is the first and last Inspector Troy book I will read. After just a couple chapters, I found I did not even like the main character. He's always getting beat up and always being pulled into bed by women. Dumb. One section detailing his sexual adventure came very close to being plain old porn. Lawton's decision to use the ugliest word there is for a woman's anatomical part was really over the top and his details really don't belong in a mystery. Even with the summary provided by Tosca at the end did not explain the round about story he has written. If there was a way to give no stars, that's what I would do. I deeply regret buying and reading this book.
