slow to start - worth hanging in there

Found this book a little hard to get my teeth into it. Guy Harford, the main character, is an artist well settled into life in Tangier. However, following a diplomatic incident in which he became involved, he was recalled to London. The real reason for this does not come to light until later in the book. On his return, Guy was given employment in Buckingham Palace and was requesting to " cover-up" the death of a colleague, whom Guy is convinced did not suicide, but may have been murdered. When the plot finally thickens towards the end, Guy's predictions proved to be correct.
