Here is Alistair’s review.
Review – Death in a Red Canvas Chair
Could be the start of an interesting series
I enjoyed this book. The characters were well drawn and believable. The plot moved along at a good pace most of the time. Towards the end I thought it slowed down as the main characters discussed the evidence and worked out who had done what but suddenly it was all action again.
The plot was well worked but having an ER nurse (Rhe) lead the investigation made me glad I do not live in Pequod as the police department seemed to be unaware of what was going on in their town. Without Rhe who knows what additional disasters might have befallen on the inhabitants.
For me there was a bit too much description of meals, snacks and menus. Of course we all have to eat, but I found it a bit annoying to have so much detail so often. Maybe I was just hungry!
An enjoyable first novel. I look forward to the next.
