Rate this:
- A devoted following: Since her early success with The Thorn Birds, McCullough has proved herself popular in any genre. Whether she's writing about a Roman emperor, Mr. Darcy, or an American detective, her fans know they can expect an entertaining page-turner.

- Brilliant characterization: As always, McCullough's characters have depth and complexity. The well-loved cast of On, Off, including the newly married Carmine and Desdemona, returns in Too Many Murders, along with a new set of charismatic heroes and villains.

- Rich, historical detail: McCullough's prowess as an historical novelist is in evidence as she paints a rich portrait of a quintessential New England university town during the 1960s. From the stately buildings of the campus to the town's greasy diner, from gender politics to Cold War tensions, McCullough brings to life a period that many of her readers remember.

- Murder in a small town: Twelve murders have taken place on one day. All are different, and no victim is connected to any of the others. At the same time, Delmonico finds himself pitted against the mysterious Ulysses, a spy giving armaments secrets to the Russians. Are the murders and espionage somehow linked?

Not as compelling as the first or the last Carmine Delmonico novels. There were indeed too many murders and the rationale and deductive reasoning was a little too convenient and pat at times. Still, better than most detective series out there.
