Too much drama. I have enjoyed reading Rendell/Vine writing before, but this one I had to shelve for awhile before finishing. ( )

Not the book I was expecting, could never get into this, pages & pages of background/details that never seem to matter, overrated in my opinion, it’s a book about a crime but hardly crime/mystery fiction ( )

This one really didn’t work for me. It’s well-written, as one expects from Rendell/Vine, but the plot was just a drag.
Told from the point of view of the niece of the murderer, the story loses suspense because we know fhe criminal’s identity from the first page. In fact, the pacing drags as the story of jealousy and madness between two sisters unfolds ever so slowly.
Not really recommended. ( )

This was very good, though not a fast read for me. Dense, packed with detail about a very dysfunctional family and the many tangled webs woven by its members, but with essential facts about the central mystery parceled out in a sometimes maddeningly piecemeal fashion. We begin by learning that the narrator's sister, Vera, has been hanged for murder, a startling enough fact by itself. Then the family history begins to be revealed, with characters mentioned by name as though in conversation with someone who knows them all and understands their relationships to one another. The reader, however, not being in the know, must make multiple deductions as the story unfolds, not the least of which is the identity of Vera's murder victim. I began to enjoy the book about one-third of the way in, once I got the hang of how the story was being told and immersed myself in it. It is deceptively "short"-looking in that thin hardcover format so many mystery book club books were once published in. If I hadn't drawn the wrong conclusion from that, expecting to whip through it in a sitting or two, I'd have enjoyed it more right from the start. Intelligent, crafty, and not quite predictable. ( )

Jamie had a job in a bar between leaving school and going to Bologna ... the day after he started, an American came in and asked for a dry martini. Jamie hadn't the faintest idea how to make it but he knew Martini was vermouth so he did his best. In a little while the American brought it back to him and asked if he had put any gin in it. "Certainly not!" Jamie said, quite indignant.
