Journal Entry 1 by kingfan30 from -- Somewhere in Lincs, Lincolnshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, December 02, 2015

6 out of 10

This has been on my book shelf for a while and as I like the Scotland Street series thought it was about time I gave this a go. On the whole I enjoyed it, it starts off with Isobel whitnessing someone falling from the balcony at the theatre, from there she decides to see if she can find out what happened. It is a fairly gentle mystery really, although the ending was a bit of a let down. And I did zone out at some of the philosophy stuff. It felt very familiar though, I guess being set in Edinburgh as was the Scotland Street series may be why this was so.

I've heard good things about this series but to be honest, I can't see what all the fuss is about & for me it lacks the charm of The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency
The style of this reminded me very much of Hazel Holt's Sheila Mallory series.
The storyline is quite simplistic, Isabel sees a man fall to his death while at a concert & decides to investigate further when the verdict is accidental death - she thinks otherwise.
The ending I felt was a bit of a cop out!

While I appreciate that Isabel is a philosopher I found some of the philosophising unneccessary (& hard going!) &, like kingfan30, found myself skimming those bits.

Loved it. Enjoyed the bits of philosophy, just extra bits to think about.
Found the story intriguing and just a good relaxing read.
