So, 1999 was a whole different world. The book is a bit dated without cell phone, computers are slow and law enforcement has little in the way of resources. I like the inspector, but it was like reading "ancient history" of police detection. Far more Miss Marple than CSI Or NCIS. Did we still need to have wife abuse explained to us in 1999? Was England really so uniformed in 1999 about child abuse? I did struggle with this one a bit. Still, not a bad 6 hours of reading.
