Publisher's Summary

Detective Inspector Joseph Rafferty has just left his wedding rehearsal when Sergeant Dafyd Llewellyn calls to say that a local man has come home to find his wife dead - strangled - on the kitchen floor. Adrienne Staveley is soon revealed to be a woman with many secrets. Was she killed by her husband? Did one of her lovers do the deed? Rafferty can't help but think it a wonder that someone hasn't tried to murder her before. But to complicate matters, and to Rafferty's horror, his fiancee Abra's fingerprints are found in the dead woman's house. What was she doing there? Either Abra's having an affair, or she's guilty of murder - and Rafferty isn't sure which option he prefers...

    Any additional comments?

    I am not a person who requires car crashes or bodies dropping per minute in order to stay entertained. I enjoy a slower, thoughtful book. But this book is just too much. It is not slow and thoughtful, it is repetitive to the point of monotony.

    It is a police procedural in the series featuring Inspector Joe Rafferty. He and Sergeant Llewellyn are stymied by a murder investigation that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. The problem for the reader is there is chapter after chapter of the same thing - going back to question the same people, having nothing to show for it, bemoaning the lack of movement. It's not remotely interesting.

    I've read several books of this series and have become increasingly irritated by the characters, which are not all that likeable. Rafferty comes across as not only spineless but ridiculously illogical, dragging his feet taking action on something that any other person would have jumped into immediately. His fiancee nags him incessantly. I found myself muttering, "Explain to me again why you want to marry this woman?" Sergeant Llewellyn is constantly holier-than-thou, his cousin Nigel always untrustworthy and slimy. Honestly, I just wanted to bang all their heads together on a number of occasions. I can't find one character to relate to in this book.

    I am done with this series. Some of the earlier books I found at least a bit amusing but this one was just a slog. The best thing I can say about it is that it is inoffensive - faint praise indeed. And life is just too short to waste on books that are this irritating.
