    In a Dry Season, winner of the Anthony Award, is an outstanding example of mystery fiction. Peter Robinson's Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks conjures up memories of classic detectives like Philip Marlowe and Sherlock Holmes. An insufferable drought ravages the Yorkshire countryside, depleting the Thornfield Reservoir, revealing the remnants of the flooded town of Hobb's End and the terrible secrets kept safe within its watery tomb. Amongst the ruins, the remains of a woman's body are discovered.

    "Very Enjoyable"
    Overall

    This was the first Peter Robinson book I've read and I really enjoyed it. The narrator was a bit annoying at first but I soon got used to him. I love all the character development and descriptions; I wished it would never end.
    I now hope to read more from this author on the Allan Banks character.

    An ancient sin - an ancient oath - a town with a deadly secret. Frank Peretti has done it again in this spellbinding novel full of tension, suspense, and unspeakable evil. Read by television and film star Joseph Campanella.

    Mystique says: "Wonderful Book!"
    "Stupid Story"
    Overall

    What a stupid story! Unless you are an evangelical christian you won't find this worth the listen. The reader was sometimes hard to understand as he tried to do the different voices. The characters were all predictable as was the ending. The story was simple and laughable.
