I dived into reading this book, but then found it slow moving. As I persisted I realized the slow methodical relating of events was actually a good feature of this book. In the style of other renowned mystery authors, there are many details to notice and characters to keep track of as the unfolding progresses. Even with that effort, there are unexpected twists and turns. I really enjoyed that process.
As well I am pleased to read a Canadian author that did not shy away from portraying the Quebecois - L'englais perspective accurately.
I recommend this reading experience especially to those who would enjoy a good mystery. On to Book #2.
