I laughed out loud many times at the preposterous conversations and misunderstandings and the marvellously eccentric characters. I liked the way Jack cut through all the posturing and Okinawa - the Japanese delegate - is a marvellous character. This is probably one of the funniest books in this entertaining series. The murders take second place to interaction between the characters so if you're expecting a conventional crime novel then you may be disappointed. As a portrait of the problems in Ireland I've no means of knowing how accurate it is but it definitely sounds plausible.
If you enjoy crime novels which are out of the ordinary then try this one - or any of the novels in this series - they are full of satirical portraits of people and institutions and are very amusing in my opinion.
