#6 in the Lloyd & Hill British police procedural mystery series. I had a heck of a time getting into this book and very nearly didn't finish it. I couldn't believe it, as I've absolutely loved all the previous ones in the series, but this one felt terribly slow, draggy, and kept bopping back and forth between present time and 15 years previously--looking at crimes and murder cases during both time frames, and how the one from the past affected the present-day situation. It just was NOT interesting to me--aside from Lloyd and Hill, I couldn't give a hill of beans about any of the main characters or their stupid lives, and wished they'd all be killed off! LOL I admit to skimming the last quarter of this book just to get it over with...I have not given a book this low of a grade in ages--I think it may be partially that I marked down just because I expected the usual stellar performance from McGown and didn't get it! I guess every series author has a couple of "off" books, and I hope this is the only one of McGown's!

Complex and tightly woven. No holes in the plot or resolution.
