“only the innocent” is a detailed and intriguing murder mystery where it turns out the victim is the ‘baddy’. Set in the uk the story opens with a murder and we quickly meet the main players of detectives and suspects. However it takes some time to really get going with too many asides and confusing flash backs.
But it was worth sticking with because once the plot starts to come together the motivation and interaction of the various characters is what it is all about. By the end of the book I had almost forgotten about the original murder as we had been discovering about the victim rather than pursuing the killer. A good read, not one I would overly recommend, but not bad at all.
