Even allowing for the fact that this may be a first novel, it is difficult to find anything positive to say about it. Ms Regan’s knowledge of the theatre adds a certain authenticity to the background but that apart, the style is amateurish and the English poor with badly constructed sentences. Page after page we are treated to constantly repeated expressions - characters touching their temples, rubbing their mouths, pressing their lips together, sweating, sighing and taking deep breaths, to mention just a few. The dialogue is unrealistic, and the to and fro between the murderer and the police at the end of the book was reminiscent of a bad Victorian melodrama. In addition, the sexual tension between the female sergeant and the inspector with the troubled past is just about the most overdone cliche in modern crime fiction.
