I had an impression that it was a good read so I bought it. The reader reviews on Amazon.co.uk were not kind to the book and most of them criticized how dull the conversations are. Then I felt they were harsh comments. But now after I read part 1
I changed my mind.
The writer was in police force before, therefore the conversations may be too 'down to the earth' and lacking imagination (or drama). I got bored after 70 pages.
