I'm interested enough to read the next book - but I hope the author develops the characters more.
Only in the last 5% of the book Mackinnon looks as someone who actually matters although the details of his 'family life' are conceivable but not typical for a leading hero in a police procedural. As in the subsequent book, his relationship with his lady is quite odd and not very pleasant to read about.
I am, obviously, quite old fashioned old fellow. I like my fictional heroes more simple, without all the problems described in this (and the subsequent) book.
I know about Huntington's decease and I was wondering what the author will 'do' about it after mentioning in passing early in the book. Well, the story turned out to be basically about the problems with this fortunately very rare but completely incurable disease. More accurately, about rather odd way a wife of its victim behaves.
The UK English is similar to one in the subsequent book, maybe better understood by US readers than just an old immigrant like myself. I wonder, however, how many readers here knew immediately what 'viva' is. It definitely was not explained in the embedded English dictionary but I found it in Wikipedia. Did not play any role in the book BTW. Just nitpicking.
I cannot recommend the book to anyone except Anglophiles. Three stars - there are some very accurate observations of the Academia the author makes.
