I wanted to like it more. The detective is quirky. I like her unconventional methods and especially the references to her mentor Silette "But Silettians don't worry about justice. That's for the courts and judges. Silettians worry about one thing only, and that's the truth." And on a book falling off the shelf, "Above all, inner knowing...trumps every piece..,evidence, clue, rational assumption. If we do not put it first....there is no point in carrying on, in detection or in life.". Add to this method of finding the murderer unhealthy drug use and voila! Mystery solved albeit via an unruly, unexpected, enjoyable way.
