This is a chatty British style detective story written by an American pretending to be a Brit... or something like that. I'm not a fan of written British style books. I'd rather see them on film. My wife, on the other hand, loves them and she loves Elizabeth George and this book. I enjoyed it but without the rapture. I don't know if this is a chick vs. guy thing or what, but for me it's too chatty. However, it is well constructed, intelligent, and absorbing if you don't mind taking the long route. I've been told that the meandering is what makes George's genre so wonderful. Maybe so.
