As a fan of Stephen Booth's Cooper and Fry series I was rather disappointed with this one The first half of the novel had no plot development whatsoever Instead the reader got endless descriptions of landscape what seems like the entire history of the city of Birmingham both architecturally and socially tiresome explanations of Police procedural and acronyms and so onAnd even when the pace did pick up in the second half the plot was somewhat contrivedI am very sorry to say that I really did not appreciate this one But I'll definitely give the next one a try again
