    1 thought on “O Gentle Death”

    1. This book had such promise; a murder of a school girl with a Chief Inspector on scene. You had to plough through a third of the book before the murder occurred. Which isn't necessarily a problem except wading through that first part seemed like repeating the same actions and unnecessary scenes. Overall the book was boring, I only finished it because I hoped it would get better and the ending was unsatisfactory.Investigating the author, I found that this is the seventh book involving the policema [...]

    2. I have the faintest idea how I came across this author, but if this work is any indication, I am in for a treat. This book was a complex web of characters all involved in a private school, Faraday's, catering to the artistic. At first I worried about keeping about a dozen main, active characters sorted out, but it wasn't a problem. I thnk the resolution was every day tawdry--the step-father's the culprit--but I mean this in a compimentary manner. It's was a believable crime in that way.

    3. First of Janet Neel's novels that I have read. Detective Chief Inspector McLeish was a most interesting man and he and his team did a fine job of unravelling what became a suspenseful conclusion to this case.

    4. too many characters too many interpersonal relationshipsseemed to take forever to get anywherelousy payoff
