Very run of the mill

I was disappointed with this story. It seemed to be very loosely assembled from stock parts which didn't fit together very well. The main character, Inspector Angel, didn't so much investigate the murder as drift from hunch to hunch. And for a relatively modern day detective he seemed to be able to operate without regard to modern police procedure or the Police and Criminal Evidence Act. Thus, in one of the sub plots, he was able to bug a suspect's phone without a warrant and without the defence solicitor objecting to the illegal act and swiftly gaining his clients' release on the grounds that the evidence obtained was inadmissible. This is one example of a number of basic errors of this type. The story was only redeemed by Gordon Griffin's narration, but even he sometimes struggled to make the plot believable.
