I'm a die-hard fan of Peter Robinson, but I can't in all honesty recommend this book to anyone, friend or foe. The narrator's delivery is so grating, so alien, it has taken me nearly three years to complete the listen and then, due only to my $$ thrift, since having spent the credit, I couldn't allow it to be totally wasted. Perhaps there is another audiobook category Mr. Keith's delivery might fit? I'm not trying to be flip here, but maybe...Children's Books, or maybe The Wall Street Journal. t's a shame two of Mr Robinson's books have been read by this narrator, when James Langton (my personal favorite for this series) and Simon Vance, both excellent performers have done such credit to Chief Inspector Alan Banks and the Eastvale Police.
I can't compare this to any other books in the series. The book seemed to depart from other Peter Robinson/ Alan Banks books because the construction and development of the plot is in large part told through a third party, many years after the fact.
To write this review.
I'm anxious for those books in the series not already on audible.com, to become available and allow the series to be complete.
