I wasn't sure I liked this book at first. But one third of the way I was hooked! I really like the Lynley and Havers partnership. Looking forward to the next book :)
Generally, I love Davina Porter, but I found her characterization of both Havers and Lynley to be discordant and her male voices not to be as good as usual. Her Helen was delightful.
As a modern police procedural, this seems very dated with no cellphones and limited computer usage. Finding clues by going through trunks for old theatre programs seems very hit or miss now.
