Read full description of the books Death on a Silver Tray:This book is the first in the Beau Brummel mystery series. I picked it up because I am interested in Beau Brummel, and the biography I wanted to buy I couldn't immediately get my hands on.
I will be the first to say I don't read a lot of mysteries, so I don't really know what the standards are. However, I think there were some amateurish moments. The book really suffered from being written in first person -- it meant a lot of expository dialogue and a LOT of Beau thinking nice things about himself and his clothing, which would have been less abrasive if written in a third person format. The reason for Beau becoming involved in the investigation is flimsy at best. And I figured out who the killer was about 6 pages after the murder -- though I did get the motive wrong. Like I said, I don't read a lot of mysteries, and when I do I often can't ever figure out who the killer is, but when entire characters don't seem to have a plot-related reason to exist, it's pretty easy to figure that they must be the one.
It wasn't a great book, but it was a nice light read, less than 300 pages, and took less than 2 days. And sometimes nice light reads are just that -- nice.
