It's a blog! Mainly of book reviews.
The third volume in an on-going detective series sees a former NYC super-cop, now retired to the sticks get dragged into yet another investigation on an amateur basis. Once again the story is eminently readable and it is an improvement over its predecessors in that it is not blatantly obvious who the mystery killer is - in fact I guessed incorrectly this time.
Unfortunately, other areas of the book have not shown such improvement and indeed there is some retrograde motion in one respect. To talk about them goes somewhat into spoiler territory so I'll hide it, just in case - not that I'm going to tell you whodunnit.
I didn't pay for any of these three novels and I can't say I'm inclined to shell out money for any future ones. I might give Verdon another chance if a free copy comes my way again, though.
