I am working my way with great pleasure through all the Peter Robinson Inspector Banks books narrated by Neil Pearson mostly because I so enjoy the narrator who is perfect for these stories, using different accents and voices very effectively. Very British (mostly Northern England and London) in dialogue and accent, maybe that's why I enjoy them so much. I am sorry that they all are abridged versions as they are over all too soon. Typical murder mystery, the stories are well told by Robinson, written in 3rd person, mostly from the viewpoint of Inspector Banks, with quite a lot of dialogue, this episode is just as well crafted as all the rest, keeping you guessing, listening, intrigued. You also get an interesting insight into the main players and their lives, especially of course, Banks. So,to summarise, a well written story line, enhanced by the narrator who is one of the best, in my opinion, available on Audible.
I've enjoyed many of Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks novels. I haven't read/listened to them in chronological order, but recall that somewhere along the line I knew that his boyhood friend, Graham Marshall, had disappeared without trace and that there was something connected with this event that haunted Banks well into his adult life. In this book you'll discover the truth about the disappearance and go with Banks to re-visit some of his childhood haunts. It's good abridgment that didn't leave me feeling that much had been edited out and, as usual, Neil Pearson, brings the book alive with his excellent reading.
