-the kind in which setting and atmosphere are as important as plot. Very well narrated - Bruce voices the tale almost tongue-in-cheek. If Trollope had turned his hand to mystery, it might have turned out like this novel-- Set in a Cathedral town, it's sprinkled with late Victorian gentlemen turning their hands to natural science, ambitious clerics, dissolute gentry hanging on to the trappings of an earlier time, and a villain Thomas Hardy could have sketched.

I am sorry that i could not get into this story and found it stiff and very Victorian in flavour. The atmosphere was well evoked of fog and oddly behaved characters but it all seemed so wooden.
In conclusion it was sadly uninteresting and difficult to become involved in the characters and the story.
