Well, that had been a total and utter disaster.
Oh my, I just started reading this and can’t wait to get back to it. A police procedural set in Dublin is candy to me.
I can already tell Jo Spain is a screenwriter as well as author. The text is pretty dialogue heavy so far. However, I don’t mind a lot of dialogue. It can make a novel fly by.
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
Do you like novels with a lot of dialogue?
