I have no real feelings about this book. I have always loved McDermid mystery books and would have purchased this anyway, based on past experience. It was somewhat boring and disappointing this time, as I always look forward to her newest work. Based on this experience , I will think twice about purchasing her next title.
The characters in this book were not at all sympathetic to me. It seems artificial in that there are no main male characters. It is heavily weighted with lesbian characters and not well balanced with other viewpoints or storylines. Past books had much better plots.
Can't remember any favorite.
Would not recommend this whole heartedly.
Fascinating historical saga.
After visiting Ireland recently, I downloaded this book to recall the wonderful places and to learn some of the background of the beautiful locations and landmarks. Had originally read this book when it first came out, as I love the development format that Rutherford uses for his novels. It was a great read, but LISTENING to the stories again made my travel experience much more meaningful. When traveling in a limited timeframe, it is hard to absorb all of the surrounding history, and having all of this added information was so helpful. Will look forward to hearing the sequel and also to a return visit to Ireland!
