Peter Robinson is the critically acclaimed New York Times, LA Times, and London Sunday Times best-selling author of the Inspector Alan Banks series, as well as a winner of the 2001 Anthony and 2001 Ellis Awards, and Le Grand Prix de Littirature Policiire. Close to Home traverses the difficult landscapes of a painful past, and an uncertain future for Inspector Banks. Two 15-year-old boys are lost, and the circumstances of their disappearances seem oddly parallel save one detail. The first boy disappeared and was presumed dead 35 years ago.More

Golden Age of Mystery
spoiled by narrator
I would only recommend it in written form. The narrator totally distracted from the story.
He made Banks sound (to quote my Yorkshire Dad) A pompous pratt. Stilted nasal narration, and no resemblence to either a Yorkshire or southern dialect. The narration waa so annoying that it spolied the whole book.
I note the same narrator has been used in another couple of Peter Robinson's books. I shall buy them to read as I cannot listen to this narrator "murder" another good book.
