I really enjoyed the Dumfries and Galloway settings...very well done in a beautiful area of Scotland. I found the character of Fleming to be well developed and her various problems to be realistic.
Whilst having my suspicions about the actual murderer ,I do not judge crime books generally on whether I manage to work out " who dun it " . In this case I did feel that the ending was a little clunky and I did worry about some intended promotions in the force. My biggest gripe was the sheer length of the book ( over 400 pages ) ...I did feel that it would have gained by being shorter ...too much and too many side issues which neither developed many characters nor maintained a strong flow to the story . I have probably read too many GA Detection stories which are generally about 100 pages shorter so this comment may have to be taken with a pinch of salt .
