Top customer reviews
This book has the perfect recipe for either an English romp with wit and charm or a true mystery with clues that the reader has a chance of correctly interpreting. It is neither. I didn't find the characters engaging enough to root for anyone in particular (except perhaps the lion who is mentally disturbed). The one twist that propels the plot is predictable. The most interesting two characters (both women) go nowhere and the killer becomes predictable with an obvious, and sort of boring, motive. There is no sex, very little violence (not counting the lion) and not much wit to redeem it all.
A disappointment from a skilled writer.
