A very slow book. And it never picks up. The plot is minimal. Even at the end you wonder why this took so long to unravels. Much ado about nothing. Could have been much more punchy. Again, a real slow burner.

Well done mystery, straightforward story-telling with all the expected unexpected twists, driven by pretty decent character exploration. After the fact it feels a bit contrived (same as for previous book "shadows still remain") but enjoyable none the less and I look forward to the next installment.
