This stands a bit apart from this author's others in an interesting and delightful way. I found it to be quite good, and I loved the ending. I've listened to all he's written and Mr. Ewen is among my top 10 favorite authors
I bought this book because I had read Chris Ewan's other book Safe House which I enjoyed.
The Isle of man is a fascinating setting and the descriptions are beautiful. I really appreciate this author's ability to describe the setting so eloquently. However, that was not enough to save this book.
This book has a promising premise. For the first half I was really enjoying the buildup and the detailed explanation of the events that were leading to the climax of the book. Unfortunately, the last four hours of the book were extraordinarily tedious and I feel like the plot completely fell apart. The motivations of the characters felt juvenile and ridiculous.
I love mysteries and I wish the author had pulled this one together a little better. This is not a terrible book and there were parts I enjoyed, but overall it was a disappointment.
