Publisher's Summary

A beautiful June day in the Yorkshire Dales, and a group of children are spending the last of their half-term freedom swimming in the river near Hindswell Woods. But the idyll is shattered by their discovery of a man's body, hanging from a tree. DI Annie Cabott soon discovers he is Mark Hardcastle, the well-liked and successful set designer for the Eastvale Theatre's current production of Othello. Everything points to suicide, and Annie is mystified. Why would such a man want to take his own life?

Then Annie's investigation leads to another shattering discovery, and DCI Alan Banks is called back from the idyllic weekend he had planned with his new girlfriend. Banks soon finds himself plunged into a shadow-world where nothing is what it seems, where secrets and deceit are the norm, and where murder is seen as the solution to a problem. The deeper he digs the more he discovers that the monster he has awakened will extend its deadly reach to his friends and family.

Nobody is safe.

    "Unhappy listener"

    Awful reader, ruined story for me. The voice reading this story was expressionless and dull. Needs life and vigour to be more enjoyable

    "Agonisingly bad narrator"

    I've never reviewed anything in my life, but found listening to this narrative so torturous I felt I must save other people from it!
    Really, really, really irritating. Long pauses, bad accents, inconsistent accents - just dreadful in every way I'm afraid!
    It ruined the whole story for me.

    "Good story but awful narrator"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who doesn't care who's reading it.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Change the narrator. Sometimes I wonder if anyone listens to the books before they go out for people to listen.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Im repeating myself by saying it"s the narrator that spoilt it for me.


    What character would you cut from All the Colours of Darkness?

    None. The story was great.

    "Poor narrator"

    I usually listen to a sample of any book I buy but on this occasion I did not. A pity, because had I done so I would never have bought it. The narrator seemed unable to differentiate between one voice and another so one was left wondering who was who exactly. The book may well be worth more than one star but unfortunately I could not bring myself to finish it. With so many superb actors out there who could bring a telephone book to life had they a mind to, it seems a pity that this particular one was selected.

    "Unsatisfying"

    One good idea for plot- really interesting. But tedious characters to my mind and mundane writing. This is my first Peter Robinson. Maybe I'm missing something!

    "Good book which fits well in the series"

    This was a good example of the inspector banks books-not necessarily the best but good to read as part of the series.
    Did not like the narrators performance-it was more like a simple reading of the book as he hardly varied the voices-but at least it was not distracting voice so ok.
