This happened to me with the first book in Thomas Perry's Jane Whitefield series. This may have as much to do with the expectations I brought to the book as with how it started, but it really clicked midway through.
With regards to mistaken expectations, I assumed that after the masterful Power of the Dog, Don Winslow's The Winter of Frankie Machine would be scaled back dramatically. Midway through the book I realized that it is every bit as ambitious as its predecessor.
