To Kill a Wife - J.M. Gregson

The storyline is good, it is a classic whodunit, in a very British style. Most of the characters are elaborated and believable. So far, so good...Unfortunately the investigating inspector and his  ( female) sidekick are particularly unattractive. He keeps referring to the victim as a drawer dropper  (not once but about 30 times or so) and she feels compelled to say " even so..."!!!

Now if this were written in the dark ages, well, a sign of the times and all that nonsense, but it is written in the late nineties, so frankly, a drawer dropper  (and many more funny  (?)remarks) are more than bizarre and definitely outdated.
