Maybe I've read too many Anne Perry books.,
This review is from: The Twisted Root: A William Monk Mystery (Hardcover)
I saw the end of this book coming a mile away. Perry's books are all so DARK, it becomes easy to guess what horrible secret (incest, pedophilia, necrophilia, etc.) will be revealed. And WHY does Monk always wait until the trial is underway before he really starts investigating?! I think Perry's plots are becoming strangled by her own conventions as an author.
