Blah, Blah, Blah

and we're not talking about boring conversation, either. this is the first book i have read by connelly and i found it as dull and flat as a butter knife. The story was unimaginative, the characters unspired, the plot was plodding and uncaptivating and as about as suspensful as watching a game of golf.
Is the publisher sure this wasn't a rejected teleplay for Matlock or Murder, She Wrote? If you want a spine tingling, look-under-the -covers story, read Truman Capote's short story (based on true facts), "Hand Carved Coffins" in the book, MUSIC FOR CHAMELEONS.
A game of CLUE with my 5 year old nephew would have been more mysterious than this yawnfest.
