by Peter May
I picked this book up in the library, after having heard about (and downloaded, but not yet read) another of May’s books, Runaway.
This book is one of a series featuring an investigator with the unconvincing name of Enzo Macloed. It is a fairly typical, almost formulaic story. The characters are interesting enough, but the plot is the star.
I read avidly, and finished the book in a couple of days. It is easy to get into the story, and the author allows the reader to guess who the perpetrator is – almost too easily – but then there is a twist at the end.
The ending was, in fact, a bit of a let-down. The proof-reading could have been better (“palettes” instead of “pallets”) but this is forgivable, after all.
