This is a perfectly formed crime novel. It’s dramatic, full of twists and turns. There are red herrings left, right and centre. And yet, it feels familiar and predictable. I guessed the twist about a third of the way through which is always a real shame with crime novels. But without the prologue, I think I would have been caught more by surprise. Barclay gives us the clues before the protagonist can blink. A cozy crime with a hint of danger.
