Characters who had no character development, likability, and were flat. Each author seemed to say, "Oh, we're not supposed to like this person? I can do better than what came before me" and took each chapter as a challenge instead of trying for cohesion. As for the plot, I think I saw a plot bunny or two through the book, and there was a bit of a story in the end, but for the most part, it was a lot of "nothing's happening.
Even if you're suckered into the amount of Names who are involved with it.

A murderess was executed ten years ago. Rosemary Thomas brutally killed her husband, Christopher Thomas, stuffing his body inside an iron maiden and shipping it to the German Historical Museum of Berlin. Everyone knows she did it, though a few doubts linger, which led to the detective in charge losing his bearings and his wife. Then a stunner comes along. A memorial service is planned for Rosemary on the tenth anniversary of her execution.
All the usual suspects, and several folks with passable motives to have done the deed, are invited. The scene is set. The creators have, collectively, another denouement in mind. A vigilant reader can certainly tell when a writer is operating at a high level. But it really takes another writer to delve into the nuances of a story, break it down like game film, and truly see the effort that has gone into the product.
We can well appreciate what it takes because we aspire to do it with every book. Give them their due. Let them in on the fun. And everyone will have a good time enjoying the simple and complex experience of tearing through a great mystery.
