Well, this was not a mystery! Court drama. Very predictable! If u enjoy books written by a high-bred woman, u might like it. The writing style is Not for the general public, that's for sure. Lots of big words, innuendos and swearing, also. It felt like the author was trying too hard. I didn't like it that much.

Although this was mildly entertaining, when all was said and done I found this book irritating in many ways. First of all, the foul language and idiotic conversations between the main characters got very annoying, very fast. Secondly, the plot did not hold together and I didn't buy it for a second that two peripheral witnesses to a murder would be drawn deep into the investigation for no reason. Then there is a whole side plot that fizzles out with no explanation. Finally, the whole book seems to have been written so that the author could express her opinion of the Joel Steinberg/ Hannah Nussbaum case of several years ago, in which a severely battered woman failed to intervene in the abuse of her daughter. The author seems to believe that the only possible opinion, (as expressed by one of her charming characters) is to "hang the b-----!" Yes, that is how suble this book is.
