Thirteen of them. George has a penchant for overly long descriptive passages, especially annoying when certain characters and/or circumstances are uninteresting, but at least this novel intrigues and builds interest to an, alas, unsurprising denouement. The book contains George's usual felicity with characterization, red herrings, description, and plot--I didn't guess whodunit until the person was revealed, which is a fine accomplishment. Not a fast summer read, but one that rewards the reader's progress to the end.
