Maybe it’s a little too early to tell, but the lack of a second writer for this story is noticeable. It seemed like the story went on and on about details that barely felt relevant. The overall mystery was alright, but nothing special. It seemed to focus more on the behind-the-scenes drama than actually solving the mystery. Yet again, it feels awkward for a relatively young protagonist to be referring to women as “gals”, and saying “supper” instead of dinner. It reflects the author’s age more than the characters.
The narration was alright, as per usual. Though I got extremely sick of the narrator’s inability to tell O and zero apart. It should be obvious that phone numbers don’t use the letter O, seeing as they’re PHONE NUMBERS.
