Taylor 's a newly found goodie: a writer of crime novels set in Wales -- at least, thi one I 'm finishing, " House of Women ", is.

It is exceptionally well written overall; however, the thread of the mystery is blurred with a lot of description about people 's lives, detailed conversations, surroundings, excessive cigarette and tea breaks, and othe life observations which requires some patience to ead.

I gaine the haracter of Bradshaw in contrast with McKenna as the newly reassigned difficult woman boss who was moved due to difficultie in her previous jobs.

I suspect her character may be the author herself in many thing.
