How long will it take to trawl through the old, stale evidence and assess it anew?

Excellent crime writing
The author manages to weave into the thread of the crime her obvious concern for terminal illness, health care, and euthanasia. Very skillfully worked, the crime novel in itself is convincing and well written, only revealing the perpetrators well towards the end of the book. And as for the reader, he is most excellent. I don't think it would be the same without him, I shall be looking for other "reads" with him, definitely.

Not for the faint- hearted
I have always enjoyed the Serrailler series and eagerly fall on a new publication. This had all the familiar and enjoyable characters and small town settings but it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "old age is not for sissies". Dementia, Parkinson's, old peoples' homes and assisted dying are all looked at without sentimentality. Susan Hill writes well and I was absorbed and appalled in equal measure - but not entirely entertained.
