I kept reading the books hoping they would get better but they didn’t. It was sp predictable: first murder occurs. Homosexual? Second murder occurs. Blackmail? Next 3 murders occurs. Suspect commits suicide. The author uses so many different names for each of the suspects that it’s hard to keep track of them. The story gets so convoluted that it’s hard to keep. I stopped reading halfway through this book.
When I buy a mystery book, I want to be entertained not bored to death. Tis is a history book NOT a mystery book. I will never buy another book from this author. This is the second horrible book of hers that I purchased. Never again.
Can’t get enough of DI Markham and his team and his girl Olivia. His DS Noaksey adds so much to this series. The whole team add so much to the story. If this series ends, would love to be able to follow Noaksey. Read this series, you will love following Markham and his team.
I normally look forward to new books in this series but this one was a real disappointment. It was tedious and the potential murderers were just names that I had trouble keeping straight since they were not well defined. Too much about Scott and the Arctic adventure seemed as if it was just taken directly from an encyclopedia and was certainly more than I cared to know about those people. The regular characters even seemed to be flat with long sections of odd dialog. I normally like this author’s writing and her interesting characters but not this time. I did finish the book but I would hesitate to read another one in this series that I used to like very much.
I feel like I’ve taken a class on Arctic explorers, just like I felt after reading the last book. It’s a bit too much. I like the characters, but don’t like being force-fed information. I hope Ms. Mooney does plan on writing more books like these last two. It was exhausting to get through them.
This was very hard to slog through. Every succeeding book in this series seems to get more and more nauseating as every character becomes more full of themselves. The premise was sad, obnoxious and too typical of society today. Over intellectualized, bordering on idiocy. I’m done with this series.
