This non McCone mystery got off to a bit of a slow start for me. I wondered whether this was because it isn’t part of the long running McCone series and therefore possibly different from what I was subconciously expecting but I’ve also read (ok, devoured) all Muller’s other books that I could get my hands on including those featuring Elena Oliverez and Joanna Stark so I am aware that Muller can write other stuff too. I think it’s the billing as a “thriller” that had set me thinking down the wrong lines. I’m not quite sure of the technical definition of a thriller but I think of somehting more suspenseful when I think of a thriller. Which is only a complaint about the marketing of this book. I’m finding it to be a very competent mystery full of interesting characters.
