So that was MBeck no. 6 – another satisfying read. Chapter 21 introduced a new feature to the series – introspection. MBeck considers all the options and where before this was all done ‘off the page’ with the reader simply following the action at the same time as the characters, here, like a Miss Marple mystery, we get to consider the various options along with Beck. Just brilliant really, when you think about it because it almost is a dinner-party murder.
