Still Banks, But Disappointing
I have read or listened to all of these books, and will keep doing so.
This one misses the mark. No mention is made of his 2 children and next to nothing about his personal life. Those are things that make these stories especially interesting.
Hard to say. Let's just note that Prebble is a master.
Probably not. The two crime threads aren't things I want to see. Listening to what those awful people did was enough.
I hope future books are more in line with the way earlier episodes of Banks and his famiily are depicted.
