I have had problems with his characters who seem to be eccentric only for eccentricity's sake (McGee's partner, whatever his name is, McGee's strange and peculiar habits (I just hate his Rolls Royce turned into a pick-up)), with his language that is forcedly relaxed and with his dialogue that is filled up with long monologues about life, politics and none-too-bright wisdom. MacDonald babbles. That's the main problem.

So shoot me.
