Nothing Gold Can Stay: A Liam Campbell Mystery,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nothing Gold Can Stay: A Liam Campbell Mystery (Liam Campbell Mysteries) (Hardcover)
A disappointment. Having read the previous two Liam Campbell mysteries, I was quite excited when this latest edition arrived. I soon discovered, however, it was not up to the quality of Dana Stabenow's other work. Although the book has its moments when a decent plot surfaces, overall the book is a monotonous collection of trite sub-plots punctuated with silly ramblings and descriptions about the sexual exploits of the books lessor characters. It is unfortunate Ms. Stabenow's writing style has to take these measures to fill the pages of this short book. The plot idea was excellent and could have been developed into a first-rate story. Dana Stabenow has repeatedly proved she can write a great story. This book is not one of them.
