Watching the Dark (Inspector Banks, #20) by Peter RobinsonI can hardly believe that this is the 20th DCI Banks book Ive read. Peter Robinson has written some outstanding novels & although this isnt one of them it is still a very good book.
It opens with an unusual murder & Banks visiting some very bleak English locations, as well as some more pleasant foreign ones. The plot is good and, as always, the characters are wonderfully written whether they are major players or just ones that make a fleeting appearance.
As Simon & Garfunkel almost sang.....Heres to you, Mr Robinson. I love your books more than you could know. Whoa, whoa, whoa. God bless you please, Mr Robinson. Heaven hold a place for those you write. Keep those plot lines tight.
Apologies to Paul & Art for insulting their legacy. Lyrics were never my string point.
