Peter Robinson is now on my favourite authors list I did enjoy this story and the clever way it over lapsed with the past, but it didn t quite make five stars for me The reason is there were one or two places where very protracted conversations took place and dragged on for pages At these points, the author started to lose me Of course they are necessary, but not continuously for lots of pages at a time Great to see that Philip Gormley was one of Robinson s police advisors a very knowledgeable man. For me this book is probably the worst of the series up to this point The two stories running alongside each other are of course linked but the constant switching between the two didn t work for me and just drew out a not that interesting overall plot with a pretty weak ending As always the Banks Cabbot relationship was a strongpoint but for whatever reason I couldn t get any empathy with the 1969 characters particularly and the present day characters didn t turn this book into a page turner and make you want to read At about two thirds of the way through I just wanted to skip to the end and get onto the next one I m a great fan of the series but this one wasn t for me.
