Shutter Man by Richard Montanari.

I received this ARC from NetGalley. First of all I must say I have enjoyed all previous books I have read by this author. But this book left me feeling strangely flat. I cannot put my hand the reason why, but I suspect it was the use of backstory throughout this book. I appreciate backstory but when it makes up 40% + of the book I find it slows the story down and kills any forward impetus the story was making. I am willing to admit this may be a fault on my behalf. I must say I enjoyed the last 20 chapters as it was more indicative of the authors previous work. To sum up I enjoyed this book with great reservations and I am glad I did not pay for this book. Mr Montanari you have written better books
