Vintage mystery--not bad, needs a better narrator

The Yellow Claw is not a badly-written story, but definitely reflects the prose style of the period. If a reader prefers more modern styles--e.g., Patterson, Lehane, George, Kellerman, etc.--this mystery will likely disappoint. But it's a good trip to a previous writing era. The narrator definitely detracts from the story--lack of expressiveness, odd sense of timing & flow, very little "feel" for the characters.
