I must admit to really being conflicted on this book. There were so many mentions of previous crimes that Bak had solved, I was sure I was jumping in in the middle of the series. Yet everywhere I've looked has led me to believe this is the first book. It started out very slowly, and I was tempted to stop a time or two. But I pressed on, and it got better as it went along. I think part of my problem getting into the book was the strange character and place names. Fortunately, there was a cast of characters and area map at the beginning I used for the first half of the novel to keep all those strange names straight. By the end, I had come to like Bak and was drawn into his quest of find the killer.
I'm being generous and giving this four starts because I did enjoy the second half of the book, and I'll give the author another try. Hopefully, later books in the series start stronger and are more enjoyable over all.
I recommend this to any who enjoy historical whodunnits.
