Mediocre, long, enlightening
I would have been a bit more judicious in the editing... it seemed a bit long and tedious. Almost as if Peter James was trying to hit a 'word count' with this book and added things in order to achieve it, thus losing on the quality of the storyline.
monotonous, choppy, tedious
I really like the parts where Detective Grace is with his life-partner. He genuinely loves her but struggles with the fact that his wife is still missing, presumed dead, but a part of him sees himself as being unfaithful at times. I think this carries over in his work because he is sometimes either too lenient or critical of his team... he tends to find a 'happy medium' in life, whether it be work-life or personal life.
It took some getting used to Anne Flosnik's voice, but I finally got into it. Her voice is a bit grating, in my opinion. However, after about a third of the book through I got used to her, and her style of reading. She sometimes got her characters 'mixed up' in a couple places (she gave Helen the same 'accent' as Alistair's sister) which confused me, but all-in-all it was an enjoyable 'read'.
The story itself I thoroughly enjoyed and have requested some more titles from Elizabeth Hoyt through my local library.
