I enjoyed the author's new detective, Roger Blanc, for the most part and his descriptions of the region in France where Roger lives.
However, sometimes I felt the writing was overthought and overwritten. The sex scene with Roger and his superior? Why? Definitely just page filler for me and not needed at all. I don't even think it went with the character. A man who wondered if he had kissed or not kissed someone right.
A decent read albeit with a lot of unnecessary writing in which I enjoyed learning more French curse words.
Thanks to St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
