In places the writing seems not to flow smoothly. This might be due to me being an American while the author is a Scot, as idiomatic phrasing can vary. I actually found few overt "Scottishisms" to jar me out of the text.
As what I think is called a police procedural, the plot follows the expected sequence from discovery of the murder to capture of the murderer, with false trails and plot twists as well as some tense situations. The romantic element adds an extra dimension to the two main characters and provides a basis for continuity as the series continues.
All in all, the book is a fun read to while away several hours.
The only reason why I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 was because it seemed as though he skimped on the editing. Either his editor did not review the work enough or maybe the author tried to do it himself, so I did find a few distracting errors and wordiness in areas that an editor would have tightened up. But overall, I would never toss a great book just because of a few nit-picky grammar or punctuation things, so I was able to overlook these things and enjoy the mystery and plot of the story. I would have maybe liked to see a different beginning but was able to get into it after a few pages... it's just like you get the dinner right away without getting an appetizer first. If you know what I mean?
I feel this book overall for the value is a really great read and I am definitely a big fan of mystery books!
