Gare de Lausanne – Basel Mulhouse, September 2015
The one with Ethelred, the mystery writer whose wife Geraldine has disappeared. His agent Elsie begins to investigate, dragging Ethelred into the matter.
Enjoyed the beginning but was less convinced by the end. Didn’t like the use of two points of view. At certain points, Ethelred writes his novel within the novel but it distracted me from the narrative. It was used – I think – to allow the character some psychological downtime, but whatever it was supposed to achieve went over my head.
The novel lacked a proper conclusion as it’s the beginning of a series.
