    My impression of Ricky from the first book still stands he's too precious and how he managed to bumble his way into every step of the investigation and leave nothing for the second investigation was too much Still he was a nice change of pace from his too suave and bland Papa I'm glad he didn't turn too too much

    In this late entry of the Inspector Alleyn series the focus is on Alleyn's son Ricky While the last third when Alleyn himself arrives on the scene was exciting I found the mystery itself a little obvious Wanda McCaddonNadia May did a decent narration but it wasn't as good as some of hers I have listened to

    I wish I'd discovered these during my long ago Christie phase because while I don't think Marsh's plots are as neat as Christie's her writing is better However I was still fairly meh about this one police procedurals are just not my cup of tea even though I like the charactersI may see if I can find the book or two which come after Artists

Anything but an accident And when Ricky himself disappears the case becomes a horse of a different color for his father Inspector Roderick Alle. This was a very enjoyable revisit with Roderick Alleyn s son Ricky The last time we saw him he was six years old Now he s twenty one and trying to find his own way as a hopeful writer of fiction My favorite parts were his interactions with his father and godfather Inspector Fox who are both anxious to keep Ricky out of their investigation even though he s already right in the middle of it by the time they arrive I didn t enjoy the emphasis on chasing drug dealers which has cropped up too often in Marsh s later books but it s certainly something relevant to the time period It s sad to think that I ll be done with the Alleyn books soon In spite of a few in the series that bogged down and had me wondering if I even wanted to keep going I m glad I stuck it out The later books have picked up and been enjoyable overall I definitely recommend this one
