3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good read, 30 avril 2014
I almost gave up on this as I thought it was going to turn out to be sheer fantasy, but not at all and i'm glad I persevered. Dreadful and weird murders, police investigation with a touch of fantasy/horror.
I was a tiny bit irritated by the Detective Inspector who had a lot of inner smiles of indulgence for his inexperienced colleague, a female colleague as it happens ... but the characters are well-drawn and believable.
On the whole a good read, not a masterpiece, but a good, solid, decent book combining credible with fantasy, but not going too far with the unbelievable. That in itself is an achievement.
