French's writing is strong but at times she seems in love with the sound of her own voice: characters (particularly the narrator, the old guy detective) go on and on and on, in speaking, and in the narrator's case, in an elegant, often melodramatic reporting of his thoughts and observations. In the second half of the book, this style works against her, as the plot certainly thickens and the reader wants to get places faster.
