GERMAN-Language book. It is a translation of Martha Grimes' novel "The Grave Maurice".
I've heard of Martha Grimes before, so expected a good novel. I was a bit disappointed. While nicely written, it was at times somewhat boring (it felt like I was reading an episode of "Friends") and the actual crime-solving part of the book took a backseat to bantering and humorous (well, not that humorous) chit-chat. Maybe that's Martha Grimes' style - but as a mystery it wasn't that interesting.
