good news/bad news, LOL!

The good news is that I couldn't put this book down; it's a real page-turner. The bad news: I'll probably have to wait another year, at least, for her next book. Count me a fan for life.

I won't restate the story here; others have done that. I'll comment on the actual writing: The crisp style and brilliant dialogue capture the family relationships and pitfalls thereof in an amazingly accurate and pointed way. The Irish facility with expressive language and humor makes the dialogue absolutely sparkle. The police/crime aspect of the book is secondary to the character novel. Terrific job, Ms French - can't wait for your next one!

I'm a fan of mystery: For like-minded souls, this isn't it. I knew "who done it" at the end of the 2nd chapter and dredged through all 360 some-odd pages for the author to confirm my guess. In the meantime, you must translate Irish slang and read through the author's personal pain and philosophy. No real hero and French attempts to make the villain mildly sympathetic. Try something else.

    Altho the writing was still great, the story was just not up to par w/her last two novels, which I thought were phenomenal.
