Lady Macbeth : Nicolas Freeling.

It was not a very important case. No crime had been committed. Van der Valk is intrigued. It isn't everyday that a quiet housewife is machine gunned down at lunchtime in a block of flats. For Van der Valk the shady dealings of a prosperous Amsterdam jeweler were more of a private puzzle. Two bullets put paid to that incurable curiosity. But the body isn't discovered until hours later, and by that time, the killer's trail is already getting cold.

I own every book Freeling published, including his very interesting and enjoyable memoir of his life as a chef.
He's one of my 2 or 3 favorite crime/mystery authors.
Unfortunately I found this book rather slow moving, and somewhat unsatisfying. I never became immersed in it, unlike my experience with most of his other books. Freeling has a quirky writing style, hard to describe, a bit elliptical and stream of consciousness, and in this case it was more intrusive than in most of his other books. I found the conclusion particularly unsatisfying.
Still worth reading, for a fan of his work and style, but definitely at the bottom of my Freeling list (along with "The Janeites", "One More River", and unfortunately his book of crime lit crit "Criminal Convictions" (update -- I corrected this citation per the useful comment on my review)

Still glad I bought it, and perhaps I will re-read it and see if my reaction changes, but it's way down the list.

Has all the typical Freeling elements and some good surprises but is more challenging to read than some of the Castang novels because the narrative is broken up among so many different voices and the clues are all psychological, take long meditation to emerge.

It was good.

The description of this book sounded very interesting, so I ordered it. Perhaps I should have known better having had a negative experience with the last Nicolas Freeling novel I read. I thought perhaps it was a fluke, so I decided to try it again.

How sad that it happened again. Mr. Freeling’s writing style is so obtuse and wandering that I just couldn’t follow it very well. He seemed to go off on unrelated and uninteresting tangents and I just got tired of them.

I apologize that I did not care for his book. Although his writing style might interest some, it was just too much work for me. I must agree with another reviewer who said that the most interesting thing about this book was the description.

I want to thank NetGalley and Ipso Books for forwarding to me a copy of this book to read.

Guy is a very successful landscape architect. Sybille his wife is administrator cum excellence. It is she that does the nitty gritty in their business. An argument like any other, on a deserted road Sybille gets out of the car, storms off and is never seen again. Two people do not accept the story and file a report against Guy. It is Guy himself who is his own worst enemy. His laid back attitude, his telling of the facts in an extremely factual way, does not endear him to authorities or friends alike who do not know what to make of this.

The resolution was not for me, quite right. An unresolved ending may have been better but the writing, the story told in chapters by different people all added interest to a mystery.
