Not as good as previous installments. This was bogged down with details that led nowhere. It was also apparently a commentary on other writers (of whom Cleeves doesn't approve). The 374 pages felt more like 600 pages. Not horrible, just not very good when compared to previous books.

I didn't find this to be nearly as captivating and atmospheric as the others I've read so far. Perhaps because I am a writer, I don't really find books that center around writers very interesting. I would much rather read about characters whose lives are vastly different from my own. Having said that, the characters were done well and the egos involved were quite believable. I look forward to continuing on with the series.

This is a murder mystery that I can recommend to readers. Cleves has the genre down pat: a troupe of like minded individuals drawn together by a series of literary workshops. And then there is a murder. And then there is another. And then V era Stanhope arrives on the scene to solve the murders. Suspense. False, misleading clues. And then finally the crimes are solved. Anne Cleves does Agatha Christie. Well.

Best book I have read in years!

One of the weaker Ann Cleeves books. I may however have been swayed by watching a couple of episodes of "Vera" so maybe while reading this my image of the detective and other characters was changed by the tv show. Regardless, I just didn't find the setting of this novel very intriguing. Kind of a classic "Clue" novel, with all the suspects in one location, which is kind of neat but I just didn't care about the suspects nor the whole writer's house aspect of the book. The last Vera Stanhope book was better (as was the Shetland series). Still, I enjoy this authors writing and it is still fun to try and figure out who did it.
