About this deal

I'm not particularly keen on private eyes, and I probably wouldn't have bought the book if I had known it was part of a detective series, even if it is a detective series in which the detective is dealing with aliens. When the Universal Transmitting Company finally perfected a matter transmitter capable of sending a person instantly from terminals scattered throughout the United States to any major city in foreign countries, it seemed like man's ultimate conquest of time. Robinson έχει το ελεύθερο να χρησιμοποιήσει τη συγγραφική του δεινότητα με τρόπο ώστε να ιντριγκάρει τους αναγνώστες, να τους επιτρέψει να κοιτάξουν για μια στιγμή από την κλειδαρότρυπα σ’ αυτόν τον κόσμο που μοιάζει τόσο μακρινός από όλους εμάς, αλλά χωρίς να πλησιάσει αρκετά. In fact, there is quite an air of desperation around banks as everything gets fucked up around him as he does his job. I would say to give this one a pass if you are working through the series but I think there are personal developments with our main detective and you’d need the background when you move to the next book.

It was thought provoking that someone who produced the situation in which crimes were committed might not actually have committed any crime.

But on the second day of operations, two women failed to arrive at their destinations and could not be traced. I've come late in life to Robinson and am finding I like him more and more, especially the development his character undergoes in this book in relation to Annie, Sophia, and his own profession. But further investigation into the sad demise of Mark Hardcastle leads to another corpse, brutally bludgeoned to death. If you like your police procedurals with plenty of psychological depth and interesting and well drawn characters then this could be the series for you.

New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Peter Robinson delivers a gripping novel of jealousy, betrayal, envy, ambition, greed, lust, revengeâall the colors of darkness that lead inevitably to murder. The London settings are also used very well indeed – the apartment block and country manor are both very effectively shot. Agatha Christie wrote a murder based on Othello and suggestions by a manipulator; I always thought it an awful and unreal mystery. The strange man appears in front of her and reveals that her mother was part of the sect and that she was murdered because she wanted to leave.

Usually I'm gripped by Robinson's writing within a few chapters, but it took a lot longer before I really got into this one.

This audiobook is ideal for a long night by the fire, or, if you dare, alone by a brook in the English countryside.

Set designer Mark Hardcastle’s hanging in Hindswell Woods certainly looks like a suicide, his only wounds from a noose tied by someone left-handed, like Hardcastle himself. Most hangings were suicides, Annie knew, not murders, for the obvious reason that it was very difficult to hang a man while he was still alive and kicking. A week after the night she chases but fails to catch a mysterious trespasser outside her town house, some unknown party texts Tempe four images of a corpse that looks as if it’s been chewed by wild hogs, because it has been. Spell check just doesn't cut the mustard when you keep stumbling over phrases that don't make any sense.Chief Inspector Alan Banks of Britain's Eastvale Regional Police reappears in another fluently written, superior mystery.
