At best, I found this to be a decent mystery. Not good, not bad, just decent…but barely.
The development of the characters, even the primary ones, seemed lacking. I just did not feel confortable with any of them because I did not feel that I got to know them well enough. The story was interesting but lacked that intrigue and timing which I find is integral to a well-honed mystery.
I was almost finished with the book when I was finally able to determine a clue or two about the identity and motive of the killer. I thought it would have been better if the author slowly released the clues throughout the book so the reader could feel a sense of accomplishment once the killer’s identify was fully revealed. I think that many readers of mysteries like to feel they are detectives and actually play a part in the solving of mysteries rather than having it all handed to them at the very end of the story.
This entire story left me with an empty feeling because it started off with what I thought to be real potential. But as I plowed on, sort of lost rather than confused, I felt almost burdened and finally disappointed with an ending that was neither here nor there.
It appears that author Michael Fowler has a lot of fans out there that anxiously await his next book. I am not part of that lot mainly because I do not have the time or inclination to read another of his books with the feeling that Coming, Ready Or Not left me with. Like holding an empty bag.
My best rating would be 2 stars and I will not be recommending this unless I come down with dementia.
...the grammar is simply appalling. The first two books were the worst and I attributed this to a bad “translation” from paper to eBooks. The most excruciating punctuation in all of the books of the series seems to henge on the use of a comma… there when least expected and gone when the prose could use a commonly wisely.
But now to the good side of the books: they have excellent plots. I don’t know if the author actually used cases that he had worked on during his time on the job or whether these are just completed fragments. The plots are excellent (if you can get by with the poor grammar in the whole series - which has surely been proofread this go-round).
If you’re able to just let good grammar and punctuation go, then you’ve an excellent set of police procedurals that make for great reading.
I’m only giving this two stars because I found getting through the series was almost exhausting.
