The blurb on the back flap sounded Really Good so I was eager to read this book. However, it did not quite live up to my expectations. It wasn't horrrible, but it wasn't great. The mystery plot itself was decent, but there were a lot of pages I could skim or skip because it wasn't pertinent to the plot. I was also able to figure out the killer pretty early on, which was a bummer.
Engaging sleuth and fast moving plot!
Loaded with Snark
Snarky, snarky, snarky. The protagonist doesn't like anyone very much, though he lusts after anything hunky and good-looking. He's as deep as a pool of spilled vinegar, and twice as sour. In the first 20 pages the author killed off one of the nuns, a person our hero didn't like (oops, that covers just about everyone), which means we didn't get to know her at all, or care that she died. But that's par for the course -- why should you care about any of the characters when the protagonist doesn't and the author gives you no reason to? I couldn't get past page 25.
