An excellent Insp. Banks story; the Inspector has been posted to the outlands for some infraction, there given a nothing case from long ago, but in working the case, a tale unfolds and the story is told in the current day and in WWII. Given the two tales, and a new possible love interest, a facinating story with great detail that you cannot stop reading is presented.
I enjoyed this Inspector Banks novel very much. He has to find a killer who murdered a beautiful young woman fifty years ago. Nicely done story with past and present interwoven.
Really good. This was my first Inspector Banks and I was hooked. Loved it!
This is top notch. If you like some of the British writers like Val McDermont or Mo Hayder you will enjoy this Inspector Banks book. It is complex and compelling with a multi-layered mystery.
