By the end of the book, I really didn't care who had done "it." Giving it two stars is being generous.

Boring topic -- race walking. Murder could have happened sooner. The ending was who I thought but for a reason I hadn't suspected. Sgt. Cribb didn't really interest me, so I don't think I'll read any more of the series.
