Slightly better than both Murder in Cormyr and Murder in Halruaa, but still a bit of a disappointment! Well written, but not the kind of book that you'll have trouble putting down. The plot and setting are ok, but that's it, mediocre; nothing more, nothing less. It is very unfortunate that the Murder Series came to an end before the writing of Murder in Ravens Bluff and WotC should reconsider their decision now that years have gone by and maybe resurrect the project, but considering the poor work included in these books I can at least understand why they did so back then. In conclusion, the heroes are average, the villains are very weak, the plot is ok and the writing is good. My advice, read it only after you're done reading most of the other Dragonlance books such as in authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends trilogies, and you are still in need of more Krynn related material; at least you'll get a slight hint/taste of Ansalon.
PS What was the point of including Badar in the book? The character's contribution to the plot is nil.
