Six Feet Under - Dorothy Simpson

Well, Thanet did manage to redeem himself by the end, though it took way, way too long.

 

The resolution to the mystery involved a bit of a deus ex machina type situation in that

Thanet suddenly remembered he's seen a known petty criminal in the crowd at the murder scene, and that he suspects the criminal witnessed the murder, and lo and behold he did. Of course, by this point, Thanet had a sudden revelation the night before while in bed in which he figured out the murderer, but needed proof. He then remembers the petty criminal.

(spoiler show)

 

These aren't horrible books, and they're well written, I just don't think they're for me. Moving on now.

This is a hoopla borrow that returns tomorrow, and I may not finish it. I'm mildly interested in finding out the mystery behind the victim and her murder, but Thanet is irritating me in regards to his attitude about his wife wanting to return to work once their son starts school. I'm trying to remind myself that it was originally published in 1982, and even though that wasn't that long ago, attitudes have changed a lot since then.

 

It's not helping a lot, though.
