Another great story by Peter Robinson. Note book is dated 2016 but this book was actually published in 2000. HMc

Good plotting, good characters, good writing, surprising developments, and unexpected conclusion. I tended to skim over the pages or paragraphs where Robinson fills in time by giving background information on his detectives, providing reminiscent comments by his detectives triggered by something a character said, and Banks commiserating with the circumstances of a character. I thought his constant repetition of the facts collected by the police that noticeably occur 3/4 quarters way through the book were annoying - fillers? biding his time to end the story? a need to remind himself of the facts so far? wondering how to fit the facts together to point to a killer? The story seems to have two lines of inquiry but Robinson threads these two together so that they become one.
