If this is how the police force operates it is a total disgrace. Angel is a racist bully who enjoys belittling his Asian cadet. He treats all his subordinates with abuse in the name of humour.
The plot is as full of holes as a sieve. All in all I consider the book a waste of a few hours.
By the way, Mr Silverwood, cats never should drink milk…
It soon became clear that Angel had a way of policing that didn’t tally with the procedure book. Old-fashioned and a bit of a dinosaur, his actions and dialogue started to remind me of a 1970s stand-up comedian. With more sayings and similes than you can shake a stick at, his humour became tiresome as the book progressed, intruding into the narrative.
Having read past the halfway mark, I stuck at it to see how Angel would solve the crimes. While creative and mildly amusing, his investigation and actions seemed to be inspired by Tom Sharpe, stretching the credibility of the story.
While I accept that some police officers in the early millennium could still be old school and relics of the past, Angel’s character felt overdone. The humour didn’t always temper the impact of his behaviour and comments, which rather took the edge of a neat and well-disguised twist at the end.
I’d like to be more positive as the plot is well put together, but I couldn’t warm to the character of Angel.
