Fine

Because the writing style is step-by-step, I’m glad the mystery was interesting. The unnecessarily detailed minor scenes (he did this, then he did that, then he did another thing—just to take his socks off and find a new pair and put them on, etc) make it a slow go. Listen at a faster speed to bring some liveliness to it, and all will be well. A few typical anachronistic thoughts, phrases, and actions, but otherwise, it’s a decent mystery.
