Review - A Dangerous Mourning

The basic plot concept is interesting enough — although the manner in which the death occurred is totally implausible. My issue with the book is that it consists mostly of the detectives discussing all the possible suspects over and over and over and over again. I don't think I've ever read a more redundant book. 250 pages could be removed from the middle and the story would remain the same.
