the closest detective to home that i’ve found yet i think, presuming baker’s location of york is closer to me than edinburgh which i’m fairly certain it is. this wasn’t really a mystery in many ways, who dunnit with what and why were clear to the reader early on in the book. the plot really came from watching the cast of characters that sam turner assembled to solve the crime. this was very much a first act in a series, an introduction, and i’ll reserve my judgement until i see what the cast can do from a flying start.
