It was excellent and a real page turner. This is not one of Robinson's Detective Banks books - nor part of that series - but still fascinating and with a more in depth look at the victims of crime. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who loves mysteries, especially those set in England which are my favorite. This book - as with most of Peter Robinson's books - is set in the north of England.
