I enjoyed this book for two reasons: the author's characterisation of cult members laced with dry wit and subtle observations, and the puzzle posed by the evidence at the scene of the crime. The detective is a very normal and likeable character, which I found refreshing because I'm so tired of socially alienated detectives wrestling with their inner demons.
The disclosure of the culprit has a clever twist in the tale. Not altogether fair play on the part of the author because elements that were previously hidden from the reader are suddenly revealed, but it's forgivable because all loose ends are tied up so neatly.
This is slow to start but gathers intrigue as it goes along. I like the twists and turns of the plot and the clever resolution. I was kept guessing until the end.
